Garfield County voters approved a measure Tuesday that will allow restaurants and bars to sell alcoholic drinks on Sundays.

The measure passed during a special election with 4,089 people, or 68.7 percent, in favor of the proposition and 1,863, or 31.3 percent, against.

Backers of the proposition considered it an economic development issue, which will encourage more restaurants to locate in the Enid area.

Some church leaders opposed the measure.

The vote will allow alcohol to be sold on Sundays and on the holidays Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day, when such sales previously were illegal. Alcohol sales still will be prohibited on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Voters in Garfield County also passed a 0.1 percent sales tax measure for rural fire protection.
