According to state law, the Board of Aldermen had to select a date to put the matter to a vote.

The City of Amory will hold a special election on Dec. 10.

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

Amory is currently a dry municipality, meaning the sale of alcohol is prohibited in the city.

Monroe County, where Amory is located, is also dry.

The sale of alcohol is allowed in Aberdeen, which is also in Monroe County. 

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

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

The City of Amory provided more information about voting below.
