Voters in Thomasville, Ala., approved a city ordinance Tuesday that would lift the ban on alcohol sales. The final tally was 948 for and 702 against.
The vote is significant because Thomasville is located in dry Clarke County.
In seven elections, spanning 70 years, Thomasville voters had rejected efforts to allow alcohol sales in the town.
Clarke is among 26 counties statewide to remain dry. Ten cities located in those counties have voted to go wet.
