Local Issues 
...I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, 
and warn them from me. Ezekiel 33:7 
State to decide alcohol wet and dry counties (May 28, 2013)

An alcohol-related initiated state constitutional amendment for November’s general election ballot. 

If the backers of the amendment gather enough registered voters’ signatures on petitions, thereby getting it on the ballot, and the voters of Arkansas approve the measure, it would convert all the remaining dry counties in the state to a wet status.
 
From all appearances, the effort will be well-funded and, if so, the proposal stands a very good chance of being certified for the ballot.  

For years now, the state has operated under the local option election laws, which meant that it would be the voters of a county that would decide whether their county would be dry or wet.  Now, instead of local control being the determining factor, voters in populous, often already wet counties, will be dictating alcohol policy to residents of smaller counties – even if a majority of those residents would prefer to remain dry.
