MARTIN COUNTY - For the first time that anyone can remember, Martin County residents will be able to buy beer and wine in Stanton stores.

With voters both early and on election day approving the of premises sale of beer and wine inside the city limits of the City of Stanton, the wet/dry election was overwhelmingly approved.

The final vote was 395 for and 196 opposed. What happens next is the canvassing of the election by the City of Stanton City Council next Monday, with those results sent to the state as well as the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission.

Once local stores have their paperwork in order, the sale of both beer and wine will begin immediately.
