More liquor sales fails in Fate; all but two amendments pass

An attempt to bring packaged liquor sales and mixed drinks in restaurants to the City of Fate failed yesterday and voters approved all but two of 11 amendments.

Only 3,681 voters, or six percent of Rockwall County’s voters, made it to the polls during early voting and on election day yesterday. 

By a vote of 202 to 151 (57% to 43%), Fate voted down packaged liquor sales and mixed drinks. Fate has had beer and wine available in stores since 2007 after County voters made that possible.

Neighboring Farmersville in Collin County also went wet after voters there handily approved beer and wine sales.

Amendments number 1 and 4 did not pass. All the rest passed handily.

Amendment no. 1 to authorize financing regarding military bases failed 1740 to 1861 votes (52% to 48%).

Amendment no.4 to establish a national research fund for emerging universities failed 1955 to 1637 votes (54% to 46%).

No elections for candidates were held.
