AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - In less than a week, Amory voters will decide the future of alcohol sales in the town.

In the Dec. 10 special election, voters will either approve or vote against alcohol sales.

Amory is currently “dry,” meaning the sale of alcohol is prohibited in the town.

Justin Myers has been the head preacher at First Assembly of God for four years.

He said Amory doesn’t need it.

Carla Glasgow is the owner of Shelter Insurance on Main Street, and she supports the sale of alcohol.

Signs, both for and against the sale of alcohol, can be seen across Amory. Many businesses have voiced their votes with signs.

There are two propositions on the Dec. 10 ballot. One proposition is for the sale of beer and light wine. The second proposition is for the sale of alcohol.

In order to vote in the special election, voters must be registered as an active and qualified voter in the City of Amory.

Amory voters did not approve the sale of alcohol in a 2014 vote.
