The hot topic in last week’s Chester County Elections was the Liquor Referendum, which unofficially failed by just 26 votes. The referendum, if passed, would have allowed for the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises in the City of Henderson. Liquor by the Drink was last on the ballot in 2018, failing by a 41-vote margin. The November 2022 election saw 629 votes for, 655 against.
The other local vote saw Brandy Cherry claim the District One County School Board seat. She ran uncontested, receiving 685 votes.
According to the Chester County Election Commission, the election results will be certified at 4 p.m. Nov. 28.
