    Well...did anyone vote today?

    Well...did anyone vote today?

    When I got there, I was the only one at the Polling Place. As I was leaving, I saw two other people. This was a little after 3:00 pm.

    Sure did. Unless it's unavoidable, I always vote.

    My polling place was in a school so I was not.

    My home is across the river in Ohio so obviously I couldn't vote in Kentucky's election yesterday. However, I did commemmorate the end of your state's Election Day 'blue law' by having an adult beverage (bourbon, of course) in a bar while the polls were still open! Found a out from a friend later that the place he went for lunch--a nationwide chicken wing joint--had NO idea that the law had been changed, and was refusing to serve alcohol during the day.

    Not OC related, but is it only restaurants that can serve alcohol on Election Day or can you buy it from a store and take it home on Election Day?

    Yes I voted

    Not that it did much good but I still voted and can hope...

    If you're not ashamed to own it, don't be ashamed to open carry it.

    Concealed carry, where you HIDE the exercise of your right to carry arms.

    Best of my knowledge when Kentucky killed the Election Day blue law they got rid of it completely. You should now be able to get your favorite potables at the gas station, party store, etc. It was especially silly (to those who live in "wet" counties anyhow) that with the law in place, the beer truck drivers weren't allowed to make deliveries on Election Day, because they were "selling" alcohol--to the stores, bars, etc. So they got a day off twice a year, sometimes unpaid depending on their employer.

    Another aspect of this that was silly is that for years it was the state legislators representing totally "dry" counties who worked the hardest against ending the Election Day prohibition. Why would THEY care about those two days when in theory the areas they represented wouldn't be affected to begin with?? The dry counties sure never refused the revenues generated by alcohol sales in wet counties either, did they?

    It was also ludicrous to imagine that buying people drinks in bars was still, to this day, a major way in which elections are rigged. or example from what I've read about southeast Kentucky, politically-connected doctors writing oxycontin and vicotin scrips to help their party's candidates get more votes was the new method...

    Hey Ky. I love ya, you're way ahead of us in Ohio with regards to gun rights. I just needed to bust your chops a bit about the whole booze topic.

    The "No Booze" law still exists in Lexington and Richmond despite the State repealing the law.


    No alcohol sales in Lexington on primary election day

    ",,,To make the change the local governing body — in Lexington, the Urban County Council — must repeal the ordinance banning sales, the release said."




    State law repealed, but still no election-day alcohol sales in Richmond

    I believe South Carolina might be the only state that still has the law in effect.
