LIVE OAK, Fla. (AP) -- Later this summer, residents of Madison County will vote on whether to allow liquor sales for the first time in decades
The north-central Florida county first banned alcohol in 1906 -- 14 years before Prohibition. On Aug. 28, a special election will be held, asking voters whether to allow wine and liquor sales at restaurants, bars and stores. The county currently allows beer sales if the alcohol content is below 6.2 percent.
Earlier this year, nearby Suwannee County received its first five state liquor licenses. Voters there last year approved alcohol sales.
In addition to Madison, there are only three other so-called "dry" counties in Florida: Lafayette, Liberty and Washington.
