GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — Voters in two Kentucky counties are deciding whether to allow alcohol sales.

Local media report polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday in Barren County, where voters will decide a countywide wet-dry election. Meanwhile, voters in the Butler County cities of Morgantown, Woodbury and Rochester will decide whether to allow liquor sales.

The vote in Barren County comes on the heels of several nearby counties opting for alcohol sales, including Metcalfe and Adair. A petition submitted in July had enough signatures to call a special election on the issue.

The vote in the cities of Morgantown, Woodbury and Rochester comes after Butler County residents voted against liquor sales in January. Vote totals from that election show a majority of Morgantown residents supported the measure.
