Harrodsburg has gone "moist" for the second time in less than two weeks.
A recanvass of voting in the Nov. 4 general election was held this morning at the Mercer County clerk's office and it yielded the same results on the proposition of whether to allow the city's larger restaurants to serve alcoholic beverages. The number voting "yes" remained at 1,308, and the number voting "no" remained at 1,291.
Asked if the committee against the proposition would seek a recount - a more thorough vote-checking process for which the committee would pay - committee chair Michael Conover said this morning, "No, we're satisfied with the results. With the modern voting machines of today, there's not much margin for error. But we did want to see if there if there was that slight possibility that an error occurred."
However, Conover did not rule out the possibility that the committee would petition for another election. Under state local option law, the committee could seek another vote in three years.
