All Johnson County voters will have the same question at the end. It asks voters if they would approve of allowing sellers of alcoholic beverages to be free from any requirement that a certain percentage of their total sales come from food. This applies only to establishments where liquor is sold by the drink, such as bars, restaurants and microbreweries.
The current law mandates those establishments to derive 30% of their total sales from food. The state law has been in place since 1986 and allows individual counties to opt out by popular vote.
In Johnson County, the Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to put this question before voters in the November Election. For this question, a "Yes" vote is a vote to remove the 30% food requirement. A "No" vote is a vote to keep the food requirement in place.
