Cast your ballot and buy a beer

Voters in one Utah city will be able to cast their ballots -- and buy a beer today.

The St. George City Council voted last week to suspend the ban on Election Day beer sales in restaurants.

The city attorney notes the state had already lifted a ban on Election Day booze.

But the city ordinance remained in effect.

The city attorney says without the local change, restaurant patrons could have ordered a margarita, but not a beer.
