NASH, TX (KSLA) -

Voters in Nash, Texas have approved the sale of alcoholic beverages in local stores and restaurants, while Carthage voters approved alcohol sales only in restaurants.

Proposition 1 asked voters whether they want to approve "the legal sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption only." Proposition 2 asked voters whether they approve of "the legal sale of mixed beverage in restaurants by food and beverage certificate holders only."

In spite of vocal opposition to the measures in Nash, alcohol sales for off-premise consumption in the Bowie County town passed with 54% of the vote, while the sale of alcohol in restaurants was approved with 58% of the vote.

In Carthage, a handful of votes made the difference between which alcohol proposal passed and which one failed. The sale of alcohol for off-premise consumption failed by 19 votes, 444 to 463. However, the sale of alcohol in restaurants passed by an even slimmer margin of just 10 votes, 459 to 449.

In Morris County, Daingerfield voters had only one proposition to consider, on the sale of alcohol sales in stores. That measure won with 59% of the vote.

In Harrison County, Waskom rejected the sale of alcohol for off-premise consumption by a vote of 68% to 32%.

Elsewhere in east Texas, voters in the Queen City ISD approved a continuation of its current tax rate. Without the vote, the current rate would roll back to a lower amount, meaning less money for the district.

Shelby County and the city of Center had a ballot measure asking to approve a property tax that would create the Deep East Texas Groundwater Conservation District. The idea was handily beaten, failing 96% to 4% in Shelby County, and 88% to 12% in Center.

Statewide, voters had to decide on nine constitutional amendments. All of them passed without any problem. The one that's gotten the most attention is Amendment No. 6, which allows for the creation of the State Water Implementation Reserve Fund. Back in the spring, Texas lawmakers agreed to create the fund using money from the state's 'Rainy Day' savings account, and let voters decide whether or not to put it in place. With 81% of all the votes in, the amendment passed 73% to 27%.
