 The decision will soon be made to determine if alcohol can be sold in restaurants or businesses within the city limits of Hodgenville.

Hodgenville city registered voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 for a special wet/dry election. Only registered voters in the city limits of Hodgenville in the following precincts are eligible to vote: Hodgenville West, Hodgenville and Hodgenville East.

The sole question on the ballot to be answered is “Are you in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in the City of Hodgenville?” YES or NO.

For the special election only, LaRue County Clerk Linda Carter said the voting stations for all three precincts will be set up at one central location inside Hodgenville City Hall, instead of the usual voting locations for regular scheduled primary and general elections. She said City Hall will be closed on the special election date of April 17, as they are not able to conduct any city business during the election.

Absentee voting machines for the special election will be made available at the County Clerk’s office until April 16 during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Carter also stressed several facts to insure the election goes as smooth as possible for those who will be voting.

“You have to be a registered voter in the City of Hodgenville in one of those three precincts. If you are a registered voter in one of those precincts and you live in the county and not the city, you will not be able to vote,” Carter said.

Any and all voting questions about the wet/dry vote should be directed to Carter’s office at 270-358-3544.

The LaRue County Herald News will hold production and printing of the April 18 edition until the election results on Tuesday, April 17 are made. Deliveries to business locations across the county will be delayed, but subscriber delivery will not be impacted for regular scheduled Wednesday delivery.
