The future of alcohol sales was decided by voters in Estill County Tuesday.

And it all began with a petition.

"I think that each person should have the right to decide whether or not they want to purchase alcohol," said Jacob Estes, who started the petition in 2012, and got enough signatures to get the county to ask the wet/dry question.

The last wet/dry vote in Estill County was held in 1960--back then, the county voted to stay dry.

But "Are you in favor of the sale of alcohol beverages within Estill County?" was asked again at the polling booths Tuesday...and voters--both for and against--came out to answer.

Voting finished at 6 p.m.  ABC-36 will have the results of the vote when they're made available Tuesday night.
