Special Local Option Election

Individual cities in Texas have local control over what types of alcoholic beverages can be legally sold in their communities. Citizens in a community can hold a local option election and decide to legalize or prohibit the sale of different types of alcoholic beverages (beer, ale/wine, or distilled spirits) for on- or off-premise consumption. On January 2, 2019, a petition was filed with the City Secretary and certified, in accordance with Section 501.031 of the Texas Election Code.  State law requires that, upon receipt of a valid petition, the City Council order a local option election to be held on the next uniform election date.
