Election FAQ – November 8, 2016

What is on the ballot?

In addition to the county, state, and federal offices, there will also be a Special Election in Justice of the Peace Precinct No. 1 for: “The legal sale of all alcoholic beverages for off-premise consumption only.”

What is the proposition for?

If approved, the proposition would permit liquor stores in certain portions of JP Precinct No. 1.

What area does JP 1 include?

Not all NRH residents will see the proposition on the ballot; only those located within JP Precinct No. 1. See map.

Why is this on the ballot?

A petition committee, Tarrant JP 1 Citizens for Total Wine and More PAC, collected sufficient amount of signatures to have the proposition placed on the ballot in JP 1. 

What does it mean for NRH?

No change. Since only a portion of North Richland Hills is located in JP Precinct No. 1, the election will not override the city’s existing regulations regarding alcohol sales.
