ANDREWS-   Election day is Tuesday and there are a number of hot topics up for vote, including whether or not the city of Andrews will remain dry.

"Sure we've been 100 years without no drinking, but there's probably within that 100 years, there's probably double the amount of people that drink," Andrews resident, Curtis Hill, said. 

Curtis Hill is one resident from Andrews that's hoping on Tuesday people will take to the poles and vote yes for the sale for alcohol. This year is not the first year the hot topic has been on the ballot but supporters are hoping this will be the year they'll make history.

"I hope it will, I honestly think it will save a lot of accidents down the road, a lot of people now they go out of town and all to get their drinks no matter what," Andrews Resident, Peter Peters, said.

But not everyone agrees, some say they want Andrews to stay the way its always been. 

"As for me we are wanting to keep it a dry county and my family. I'm married, I have a husband with children and we've lived here for two years and we're in a wonderful town and it has been dry, " Andrews resident, Dea O'Connor, said.
"I hope that it stays dry. I hope that the voters will get out and vote," Andrews resident, Isadora Mcclanhan, said.

As of now, it looks like its going to be a close call and voters are unsure with who they think is going to come out on top.

"Well I don't know, I think it's going to be a close race, there's passionate people here that are for either side. They're wanting a wet county and there's people here who are wanting a dry county," O'Connor said.
"Well I really don't know but I'd like to get Andrews wet," Peters said.

Regardless of what side you're choosing, be sure to go out and exercise your right to vote.

"Whether or not you vote dry or not, just get out and vote. Don't sit and complain that your vote wasn't heard if you didn't vote," Mcclanhan said.
