A referendum to allow restaurants and bars to sell mixed liquor drinks in one town on the Outer Banks has passed.
The Dare County Board of Elections says the referendum in Manteo passed Tuesday with a vote of 163-102. As of now, those results are considered unofficial.
This is the second successful liquor by the drink referendum on the Outer Banks in the past six months, according to the Virginian Pilot. Voters in Hatteras Island's Southern Villages made the same move in December. The towns of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo and Avon will hold similar referendums in July.
