No Mitt-inis for you! Two states prohibit booze sales on Election Day11/6/2012
If you'd hoped to spend tonight playing an election-themed drinking game, throwing back Mitt-inis or Obamahol, you'd best hit your local liquor store early. Well, maybe not so fast, Kentucky and South Carolina. There are still 80-year-old laws on the books in those two states that mean it's illegal to buy or to serve alcohol on Election Day. "The … sales ban is a relic of the Prohibition era when saloons sometimes served as polling stations," says Ben Jenkins, the vice president of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. The laws were also in place to prevent buying votes with booze. Don't worry, Kentuckians and South Carolinians, we plan to drink for you, too. [Source]
