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.

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.
