Wine and beer vote splits town — 690 to 690 PDF Print E-mail

Some want recount because if it's a tie, the place stays dry

updated 8:25 p.m. CT, Thurs., April. 17, 2008

TISBURY, Mass. - Tisbury voters, it seems, are split on whether to allow restaurants in town to put beer and wine on the menu.

Exactly split.

A ballot question on whether to allow sales of alcohol at restaurants and inns in the Martha's Vineyard community tied 690-690 in Tuesday's election.

If it's a tie, the place stays dry. So those favoring the change have already launched an effort to get a hand recount, town clerk Marion Mudge said.

"There are things the machine might not pick up ... like check marks," she said.

Tisbury is one of more than a dozen dry towns in Massachusetts, including several on the island of Martha's Vineyard, where there are no liquor stores or bars. Many restaurants allow customers to bring their own alcohol.
