Liquor Vote Planned In Sequoyah County

SALLISAW, OK -- Voters in Sequoyah County will decide next week whether to allow sales of liquor by the drink.

Fifty of Oklahoma's 77 counties have begun serving liquor by the drink since it was legalized in Oklahoma in 1985, and neighboring LeFlore County recently approved a measure allowing the practice.

That left Sequoyah County, in east-central Oklahoma along the Arkansas line, surrounded by other counties offering liquor by the drink. A petition drive led to Tuesday's special election.

Voters in the county have rejected similar measures at least twice in the past 25 years.

Alcoholic beverages are currently available in Sequoyah County, but customers must bring their own bottle to a private club and have a bartender prepare it.
