PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – The story of a controversial vote that brought liquor to Pigeon Forge is not over.
The Sevier Election Commission says the vote was flawed. Close to 300 people who lived outside the city should not have voted in the city-only election.
However, several restaurants in the city have already started selling liquor.
The whole issue goes before a judge Wednesday morning.
"The chancellor tomorrow can decide to uphold the election, or declare this election void and order a new election. The issue then would be when that election is held," explained Dennis Francis, the Sevier County Election Commission's attorney.
Another possibility is that a lawsuit against the election commission over this issue could go to trial on Wednesday.
Groups both for and against the idea would state their case.
Restaurants already serving, or getting ready to serve liquor, have their fingers crossed.
A spokesperson with the group Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge says this issue is no longer about just liquor, it's also about possible corruption that led to a flawed vote.
