Oconee County Voters Seem More Receptive To Alcohol Sales, Survey Finds

Oconee County voters seem to have softened their opposition to alcohol sales, according to a scientific survey of registered voters conducted in the county in the last two weeks of October.

Only about one in four want to keep the current restriction on Sunday sales of beer and wine in the county.

About the same ratio want to continue the current ban on sale of alcohol by the drink.

A majority is in favor of allowing the county to sell beer and wine in retail outlets on Sundays, and a majority is in favor of allowing restaurants to sell liquor by the drink.
