PAC says it now has nearly enough valid signatures
Where the Wet Petition stands: Progress in Adair County, PAC for short, needs just 1039 valid signatures to bring the question of the sale of alcoholic beverages in Adair County to the ballot, spokesperson Shannon Sexton says. Group has added extra hours, putting on drive to complete signature phase in January.
Comments on the issue of voting wet or remaining dry are welcome, but the tone must be that of civil discourse. To our knowledge, a group simiilar to PAC opposing legal sales has not been formed, but checks around the county finds spotty evidence that there is at least some opposition. - EW
CM Story based in large part on information from PAC
PAC spokesperson Shannon Sexton says the group is fast approaching the number of signatures they need - 1,039 based on 25% of the total vote in Adair County in the 2015 general election - to get the question on the ballot. However, she says. Volunteers the signatures have found that some of the signatures they have to date are invalid. The reasons are several:
Sexton says that signatures may be invalid if:
"In the event a signature is deemed invalid, PAC volunteers are mailing a new petition sheet, letter of explanation as to why we could not validate the signature and a self-addressed stamped envelope for those documents to be corrected and returned to us. We are also enclosing a voter registration card for those that need to register to vote or change their address. Voter registration cards may be dropped off at the Clerk's office or mailed back to PAC in the envelope provided along with the fresh petition sheet. We ask if you receive one of these letters from us, please return the required information as quickly as possible as we would like to wrap up the signature portion in January."Sexton said that the group will be working hard during January to have the necessary number of valid signatures needed before submitting the petition to the county clerk for validation. The office for PAC is a 808 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY. The group's mailing address is PO Box 563, Columbia, KY. Hours are Mon-Fri, 10am-6pmCT. Saturdays, 8am-12pmNoonCT.
