(WVLT) - The votes are in, but it's still unknown if the town of Sweetwater will legalize liquor by the drink.
The Monroe County Advocate and Democrat says the results of the voting Thursday are 654 against liquor by the drink, and 653 votes for... just a one vote separation.
But, there are three ballots where the voter is not on the country roll.
So, county officials are checking with state investigators to figure out if they are registered to vote.
And those three votes could decide the entire election.
We hope to learn the official outcome Friday afternoon.
