Organizers Push to Get Sunday Sales on Ottawa, Michigan, Ballot

Say Yes to Sunday organizers are trying to come up with more than 37,000 signatures on a petition to get sales of beer and wine on the ballot in Ottawa County, Mich.

Ottawa County, located on the west side of Michigan, is the only county in the state that bans Sunday sales of beer and wine. That law was put in place by a vote in 1976. You can purchase liquor by the glass as the result of a law passed in 1981.

The group faces on Aug. 12 deadline and have already gathered approximately 24,000 signature from local residents.
