With 10 provisional ballots left to be counted Friday, it was unknown if Beaver County’s “liquor by the drink” proposition would officially pass.
With the tally at 718 for and 711 against, nine of those 10 provisional ballots, if all valid, would need to be against the measure for it to fail.
In the end, officials verified only five of those provisional ballots. Four were against the proposition, while one was for it, bringing the final tally to 719 for and 715 against, passing the measure.
With the vote finalized in Beaver County, all 77 counties in Oklahoma will be allowed to sell full-strength beer in bars, restaurants and grocery stores when State Question 792 goes into effect October 1.
