Background

On May 4 the City received “An application for local option election” to make it legal to sell all alcoholic beverages including mixed beverages throughout the entire City. Chapter 501 of the Election Code lays out the process for this and requires the City Clerk to issue petitions to the applicants and requires the applicants to obtain a number of signatures equal to 35 percent of the registered voters in the City of Round Rock that voted in the last gubernatorial election. The issued petitions were returned on June 12, containing the required number of signatures needed for a Local Option Election to be held requiring the City Council to put the proposition on the Nov. 6 ballot.
