North Augusta voters will decide Tuesday if the city will allow Sunday alcohol sales.
In July, city council voted 5-2 in favor of an ordinance to place the referendum before voters on Tuesday’s ballot.
The referendum came after Rep. Bill Hixon, R-North Augusta, introduced bill H. 5098 in March to allow municipalities to place the question on ballots during county, state and presidential elections.
The bill was co-sponsored by fellow house members Bill Clyburn, D-Aiken, Jim Harrison, R-Columbia, Roland Smith, R-Warrenville, and Bill Taylor and Tom Young, Republicans from Aiken.
Gov. Nikki Haley signed the bill in June.
If the referendum passes, it will allow restaurants, grocery and convenience stores the option to obtain a permit to sell alcohol on Sundays.
