The vote for Sunday alcohol sales in Gray and Jones County is coming up next month, almost a year after the Board of Commissioners voted to put the decision before the voters.

It appears many Jones County voters are looking at the Nov. 5 election as only being for the City of Gray, but that is incorrect. Every precinct in Jones County will be open that day, and open voting for the question of Sunday alcohol sales began Oct. 15 at the Elections Office at the Government Center.

The hours for early voting are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Gray voters will answer three questions for Sunday sales in addition to choosing their elected officials for the next four years. The first question is if the city should permit the package sale by retailers of beer and wine on Sundays between the hours of 12:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., the second for the city to permit the Sunday sales of distilled spirits or alcoholic beverages at restaurants, and the third for Jones County to permit the package sales by retailers of beer and wine from 12:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

The ballot for county voters only has the question of permitting the package sales of beer and wine in retail stores on Sunday.
