JACKSON, Ky. (AP) - Breathitt County voters have chosen to go wet.

News outlets report that 58 percent of county voters on Tuesday opted in favor of allowing alcohol sales in restaurants and other businesses.

Businesses will need to acquire liquor licenses through the state before they can start selling alcohol.

Resident Trevor Terry tells WYMT-TV (https://bit.ly/29wPD0w ) he was in favor of going wet because he says the county needs more tax revenue to rebuild its infrastructure.

In total, 2,323 residents voted in favor of the measure, while 1,717 voted against it.
