City of Reform votes to go wet
The City of Reform voted Tuesday to legalize the sale of alcoholic beverages
within the city limits.
Complete but unofficial returns from the special referendum, held March 4, show
that 297 people voted Yes to legalize the sale of alcohol; 166 people voted No.

of 715 Yes votes to 181 No votes. Carrollton voted to go wet in August of 2012
by a vote of 139 Yes votes to 136 No votes.
