Cherokee to vote in alcohol referendum

Increased alcohol availability could be on its way to the Qualla Boundary pending the outcome of a referendum vote slated for Thursday, May 31.

When registered voters in the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians head to the polls, they’ll face a ballot featuring a single item: “To allow ABC permits to be issued to allow retail sales of alcoholic beverages on tribal trust land at a tribally owned package store and ABC store,” with the option to vote yes or no.
