CORINTH, Miss. (AP) – Supporters of a vote on liquor sales in Corinth hope to get a special election scheduled before the end of the year.

Petition drive spokesman John Orman tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/SrBGoh) that group will not have the 2,400 required signatures in time for the city board meeting on Nov. 6.

He says the petition effort needs about 100 more signatures.

The petition drive began in September.

Alcorn County was a wet county for 21 years until 1989, when Alcorn County voters ended liquor sales and, in a city election, Corinth voters said “yes” to beer sales.

Referendums on the sale of liquor failed in 1993 and 2005.

A new state law changed the eligibility requirements for municipalities that may hold liquor elections.
