    By: Tenikka Smith


    MCADENVILLE, N.C. - People in McAdenville voted Tuesday on whether alcohol sales will be allowed in the town.

    Mayor Farrell Buchanan was near a polling place campaigning against the referendum Tuesday morning.

    He said McAdenville has always been a dry town and he wants it to stay that way.

    Others told Channel 9 allowing alcohol sales could pour big bucks into the local economy.

    If it passes, the measure would not allow ABC stores or bars to sell alcohol, unlike neighboring Gastonia, Lowell and Cramerton.

    Once all the votes are counted, we'll know whether the town known for its dazzling display of Christmas lights, will soon display alcohol on store shelves.

    Polls close Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m.

    We will let you know what voters decide.
