Alcohol Sales Banned During Polling Hours

While the polls are open in Kentucky Tuesday, you won’t be able to buy alcohol.

Kentucky is one of the few states still banning liquor sales in bars and retail stores while voting is going on.

Once the polls close tonight at 6pm, alcohol sales can resume.

    Well that is not fair for the Republican party. I mean I'd have to be a little lit if I even considered voting for another Republican. Now the voters will have no excuse as they did for Fletcher and Bush. What a shame.
