Drink up! It's now legal to buy booze on Election Day in Lexington

Yes, liquor stores will open today for all your last-minute, vote-buying needs.

Seriously, that's why Kentucky banned alcohol sales during hours that the polls are open. Because apparently people trying to buy votes with booze are too stupid to stock up beforehand.

From the Herald:

Lexington citizens may legally buy and sell alcohol while the polls are open Tuesday, thanks to a change in a city ordinance.

The Urban County Council voted in early September to repeal a section of the city's Code of Ordinances that said "no premises shall sell, give away or deliver alcoholic beverages of any kind on any primary or regular election day during the hours that the polls are open," according to a city news release.

State law changed in July to allow local governments to decide whether to allow alcohol sales on Election Day.
Polls are open!  Have you voted yet? Have all your family members, friends, neighbors and pets?
