The Alcoholic Beverage Amendment garnered enough signatures to make the November ballot.
Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin announced on Friday that the Alcoholic Beverage Amendment garnered enough valid signatures to be placed on the November ballot. The amendment needed 78,133 signatures to make the ballot. Organizers of the ballot initiative turned in a total of 127,265 signatures. As of Friday’s count, 87,102 signatures had been validated. Secretary Martin certified the proposed constitutional amendment for the November 4th General Election. If approved by voters, this amendment will make alcohol sales legal in every Arkansas county, doing away with the patchwork of wet/dry counties across the state. The deadline to register to vote for the General Election is October 6th.
