The push to make it easier to sell alcoholic beverages in Precinct 2 encountered another setback when advocates realized they have only until July 17 to get their petition finished.

The Precinct 2 Prosperity Project, a consortium of businesses and individuals, is trying to get just over 2,000 signatures to place a proposal on the November General Election ballot. They thought they had until Aug. 1, but a state law requires county elections offices to have a certain amount of time to verify the signatures — even if they don’t actually need that much time. The local elections office has been verifying petition signatures as they come in, Precinct 2 County Commissioner Tom Moser told The Times on Wednesday.
