In the first race decided Tuesday night, voters in Loganville approved a referendum allowing for the licensing for package sale of distilled spirits in the city limits.

The measure passed 548-252, with 174 votes cast early and almost 70 percent of the votes cast on Election Day coming from voters on the Walton County side of town. The city has about 6,500 registered voters.

    People do not "hang out" around liquor stores, at least not around Walton County. This happens in Dekalb/Fulton where there are liquor stores on every corner and the locals walk there and hang out to "play checkers". Same way they used to at the small stores in rural communities.....it was a place to socialize with your fellow citizens.

    People in this area own cars and they drive to liquor stores and they are anxious to get home and pop the cork or twist the top and pour.

    Geez Shane, you must hit the liquor stores in Decatur pretty often. I'll put Turtle Creek or The Grove's parking lot sanitary condition on my checklist, but last I checked they were better than 90% of any parking lot in Loganville.

    Shane - If you want to patronize the store, then go. If you don't want to go there, then don't. End of story.

    Can’t wait to see what admirable fruit the newly generated tax revenue will bear!! Liquor stores are always such a great new addition to communities! And they provide a safe place for people to come from miles around and hang out, sell tickets and even sell merchandise at a discounted price from the trunk of their car! Way to go – a Liquor store!
