Voters will head to the polls Tuesday to determine if alcohol will be sold for on site consumption on Sundays.
The Sunday alcohol question will be the only thing on the ballot due to city council incumbents not having any opposition.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the city precincts.
Only registered voters that live in the city can vote in the election.
The votes will be case at Ward 1 at the Newberry County Courthouse Annex on College Street, at Ward 2 at the Serenity Chapel on Speers Street, Ward 3 at Boundary Street School, Ward 4 at Gallman Elementary School on Bradley Street, Ward 5 at Mayer Memorial Lutheran on Drayton Street, Ward 6 at the Learning Center on Main Street, and Ward 7 at the Oakland Mill Apartments on Fair Avenue.
The ballot question will read, “Shall the South Carolina Department of Revenue be authorized to issue temporary permits in the city of Newberry, South Carolina, for a period to exceed 24 hours to allow the possession, sale and consumption of alcoholic liquors by the drink to bona fide nonprofit organizations and business establishments authorized to be licensed for consumption-on-premises sales?”
A “yes” vote will allow for Sunday alcohol sales at locations with permits. A “no” vote would prohibit the alcohol sales on Sunday.
In addition to this vote, voters countywide will vote at the November election for Sunday alcohol sales both by the drink and at stores.
If the countywide vote passes alcohol can be sold in the city both by the drink and for carry out.
To vote, a person must present their voter identification card or a valid photo identification.
Votes will be counted at the Newberry County Voter Registration Office on Wilson Road near Bi-Lo.
