Prentiss County voters elect to stay dry

PRENTISS COUNTY — Prentiss County voters soundly rejected an effort to legalize alcohol sales in the county with about 63 percent of voters against coming out from under Mississippi dry laws.

Official vote totals showed 2,167 voters supported the referendum while 3,657 voted against it in Tuesday’s special election.

Of the county’s more than 17,000 voters, The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the issue stirred the interest of little more than a third of voters about 34 percent which included about 200 absentees.
