Metro Atlanta went to the polls last night and voted overwhelmingly to end the state’s age-old ban on Sunday alcohol sales.

Early poll results showed voters in most of the 51 metro Atlanta jurisdictions gave a resounding yes to seven days of package sales in referendums. Only two other states have outright bans on Sunday alcohol sales — Indiana and Connecticut.

Only two cities voted no — Palmetto in south Fulton and Forest Park in Clayton County.

Dates vary as to when the new law will take effect, ranging from the second Sunday after election results get certified to maybe as late as February.

How do you feel about the Sunday alcohol sales ban being lifted? Let us know in the comments!
