Lubbock County commissioner’s this morning officially validated signatures that will call for a local option election in May pertaining to alcohol sales within Lubbock County specifically for beer, wine and liquor. The Lubbock County Office of Elections presented the results of a pending alcohol petition to the Lubbock County Commissioners at their meeting this morning. Organizers submitted 25,263 valid signatures for the Mixed Beverage local option and organizers submitted 25,720 valid signatures for the off premises local option. Lubbock County Elections Administrator Dorothy Kennedy predicted voter turnout could reach 60 percent. Both numbers are in excess of 35 percent of the number of registered voters in Lubbock County who voted in the most recent gubernatorial election. The election will be May 9th of next year.

This is no big suprise at all to me. Good job to everyone at Let Lubbock Vote, and everyone else who wanted your voices heard. Next up is the election on May 9th. No matter how you vote on May 9th…at least you get to vote.
