Lexington residents may legally buy and sell alcohol while the polls are open Tuesday, thanks to a change in a city ordinance.
The Urban County Council voted in early September to repeal a section of the city's Code of Ordinances that said "no premises shall sell, give away or deliver alcoholic beverages of any kind on any primary or regular election day during the hours that the polls are open," according to a city news release.
State law changed in July to allow local governments to decide whether to allow alcohol sales on Election Day.
