Deadline looms for wine in supermarket petition

Posted: Updated:
Time is running out on the push to let voters decide if wine should be sold at local supermarkets.

After years of debate, state lawmakers passed the law this year, But before you see wine on the shelves, voters still have to approve the sales by local referendum to allow it in your community.

So far, in Hamilton County alone, over 10-thousand people have signed the petition to put it on the November 4th ballot.

Each municipality has to gather the signatures of at least 10-percent of its voter population.  

Deadline for the petitions to be submitted is Friday, August 21st.

The election commission will then take several weeks to verify signatures.
