Hanson to Hold Wet-Dry Election Today

A wet-dry special election is being held in Hanson, Kentucky on Tuesday.

It will decide whether or not alcohol sales should be permitted.

Madisonville became the first city in Hopkins County to go wet in 1992. Dawson Springs went wet in 2008 and Earlington went wet three years later.

The last wet-dry election in the county was in 2011 when Nortonville residents voted against allowing alcoholic beverages to be sold in restaurants and dining facilities.

The voting will take place at the Hanson City Hall from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m.

The vote will be finalized and the results will be known within minutes of the polls closing.
