Sabinal voters on Tuesday cheered the consumption of alcohol during a special election that coincided with voting for seven amendments to the Texas Constitution, which won passage in Uvalde County and across the state. Just under 5 percent of Uvalde County’s 16,826 registered voters showed up at the polls or the preceding two weeks of early voting.

Exactly 114 Sabinal residents approved the sale of all alcoholic beverages, including mixed drinks, within the city limits, while 34 were against it. The election was limited to residents within the city of Sabinal and did not include all of Precinct 2.

In Precincts 3 and 4, Utopia and Concan respectively, 157 residents voted in favor of the legal sale of beer and wine, while 167 were against it.

On a local level, Proposition 1: HJR 21, which broadens the scope of homestead ad valorem tax exemption for disabled veterans and their spouses, garnered 714 votes for the measure and 81 against.
