Complaints follow passage of Pigeon Forge liquor referendum

Posted:

SEVIERVILLE (AP) - Potential problems have come to light in the Pigeon Forge liquor referendum passed by voters this week.

According to The Mountain Press, Sevier County election officials are investigating two formal complaints. Election commission Deputy Administrator Ed Kuncitis said the commission was talking with state election officials about the complaints.

The newspaper reported several readers had emailed the paper, stating either that they live in Pigeon Forge, but the referendum wasn't on their ballot or that they live outside the city and were given the chance to vote on the liquor issue.

The referendum on Tuesday was the third attempt to pass liquor by the drink in Pigeon Forge. Similar efforts were rejected in 2009 and 2011.
