SE Georgia voters approve liquor measures

(MGN Graphics)

Voters across southeast Georgia voted "yes" Tuesday on the issue of restaurants being able to sell liquor starting at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays.

The "brunch bill" was passed by the State Legislature earlier this year, but it was left up to the individual towns and cities if they wanted to move liquor sales an hour and a half earlier than is legal now.

Voters in these areas said yes to the earlier liquor sales:

Chatham County


Port Wentworth



Tybee Island

Richmond Hill


In Reidsville, a formerly dry county, voters approved three separate liquor issues. One allows the sale of liquor by the drink, another allows liquor sales starting at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays and the third allows Sunday package sales.

Voters in Toombs County approved allowing liquor sales in the unincorporated areas of the county on premises and in private clubs. They also said yes to Sunday package sales of beer and wine and liquor.

And in Jesup, voters said yes to allowing businesses to sell liquor by the drink and package sales on Sundays.
