Mississippi’s Walthall County approves sale of beer, liquor


TYLERTOWN, Miss. (AP) — A county in southwestern Mississippi has voted to legalize the sale of beer, light wine and liquor.

Walthall County joins several other places in Mississippi that have moved from dry to wet in recent years.

The Enterprise-Journal reported that the beer and light wine were one ballot question and liquor was another in Walthall County, which borders Louisiana. Each passed with about 75% support.

Mississippi Department of Revenue maps show that Walthall had been among a small number of counties that were completely dry because they did not have any exceptions for cities or resort areas to sell beer, light wine or liquor.
