Today was your last chance to register to vote for this May's election, the big issue of course being alcohol sales, but another issue right now is who exactly this vote will affect.
We've heard a lot of confusion about who this May's election will affect if the issue of alcohol sales is passed. To clarify -- this is a county-wide vote. That means not just folks in the city of Lubbock, neighboring towns could be going wet as well.
Now, obviously the biggest change for these cities is the sale of beer, wine, and liquor, but new zoning laws would also have to go into effect.
For voters -- it may be too late to register, but it's not too late to learn the facts.
Bill McCay, Lubbock County Commissioner: "Voting on assumptions, regardless of the election, is not smart. It's really our responsibility as voters, to be fully informed so that when we go into location to vote, that they're going to make the right decision, the decision that they feel strongly about."
We spoke to a few neighboring cities, Idalou is holding a public hearing Monday to discuss zoning issues. If you're unsure about your city, you should contact your City Hall officials for information.
