Liquor and wine both fail by over 100 signatures

There will be little to “wine” about in November as legal wine and liquor measures failed to make the ballot mainly due to people who found it too challenging to read directions.“There were more than enough signatures,” said election administrator Donna Smith of counting voter signatures on petitions for legal package liquor and wine in grocery stores for the November ballot. “However, most of them couldn’t be counted because they weren’t registered to vote in the city of McMinnville or they weren’t registered to vote at all.”To make the ballot, the two separate questions needed 335 signatures of registered McMinnville city voters. Only city voters could be counted on the petitions since they would be the ones voting on the measures.
