No liquor issues on Erwin, Unicoi County ballots

ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) -- The November ballot will not contain liquor issues in Unicoi County.

The Johnson City Press reported petitions being circulated for referendums countywide and in the city of Erwin didn't contain enough valid voter signatures.

Unicoi County Deputy Administrator of Elections Teresa McFadden said no additional signatures were submitted before Friday's 5 p.m. petition deadline.

Unicoi County resident John Day started a pair of petitions and said there were more than enough signatures turned in. However, only 45 were valid in the city and 59 in the county -- fewer than 1/3 of the number needed.
