The ballots have been tabulated and Georgia’s voters have largely supported the idea of ending the prohibition on Sunday sales of beer, wine and liquor in package and grocery stores.
More than 80 percent of the cities and counties that held referendums on the issue Nov. 8 voted to legalize Sunday package sales. Just 21 communities voted against ending the prohibition.
The cities passing Sunday sales included Warner Robins, Perry and Centerville, which are all located in Houston County. Centerville also had one of the earliest effective dates for the alcohol sales.
