SENATOBIA, Miss. (AP) -

Senatobia voters have approved a proposal to legalize the sale of liquor inside the city limits.

Complete but unofficial results show the issue passed in Tuesday's special election by a 3 to 1 margin.

A new state law allows city-only votes on liquor. Previously, all liquor votes in Mississippi have been county-wide, even though liquor and wine can be sold only within municipal boundaries.

Tate County, where Senatobia is located, is dry. In countywide elections in 2005 and 1992, liquor was defeated by voters.

The city board will now develop an ordinance governing liquor and wine sales.
