Local Liquor Option Elections

Local liquor option elections allow registered voters to vote on the question of whether, and to what extent, alcohol sales and consumption will be allowed within a particular area, usually a precinct.  Local liquor option elections can specify certain types of alcohol that may be made available within that precinct and whether the alcohol may be consumed on-premises only, off-premises only, or both on- and off-premises. (R.C. 4301.32)


The Guide to Local Liquor Option Elections (PDF) contains instructions describing how to petition for any local liquor option election involving sale of intoxicating liquor or beer.
