It’s quite plausible that most Oklahoma polling places are opened within half a mile of some retail beer sales. A restaurant, night club, convenience store, grocer, or liquor store; are all granted licenses to freely sell on election days. But both the retail clerk and the patron are immediately committing criminal acts if a polling place is within half a mile (as the crow flies).
I guess it’s yet another way in which opioids and cannabis are regarded more favorably than a can of beer, in the Sooner State?
Even driving home from the grocery store and coming within 2640 ft. of a polling place could trigger your arrest?
