Wait, hold up – why can’t you buy booze tomorrow?!

(Sorry, I’m Canadian so I don’t get to vote… but I will for sure be buying a bottle of wine on the way home from work tomorrow so I can either celebrate or drown my sorrows…)

I casted my vote early and I’m glad the election is over tomorrow. I’m sick and tired of all the political propaganda. I’m a person who does my homework and research, therefore I don’t need to be persuaded. I thought both sides carried very negative political campaigns and I’m just glad this will all be over tomorrow!

You can definitely buy booze here in Florida tomorrow and a Big glass of wine (or two, or three!) is part of my evening plans tomorrow.  I pretty much checked out after I voted on Monday.  I wish there was a way to opt out of political ads or at least avoid them after voting.  I miss Jeopardy!  They have been running 4+ political ads every commercial break for the past month.

I hope we have a definitive answer by Wednesday morning or I am going on a media strike (no Internet, no TV, no radio) to avoid the continued onslaught of political BS.

@MissSangria:  Oh wow. We can buy our booze any time during our election days in Canada. Thank goodness!

@MissSangria:  I’ve never heard of that before! If it’s true in my state, better haul backside to the store so I can be ready for election night drinking games.

A lot of southern states/counties have weird liquor laws… The county in FL that I used to live in didn’t sell alcohol on Sundays… needless to say there were not sports bars located within its borders. I can see how somehow a that law got passed ages ago.. no matter how stupid it is. I’ve been to some places where you can’t buy it before noon.. and then there’s VA where you have to buy hard liquor from state run liquor stores (VA ABC)… where they jack up the prices.

YAY. Although part of me thinks, “OH SHIT” because my guy may not win. Oh no! But nonetheless, I will be glad to have the heated bickering over with.

 TO CassandraC:  there was for certain a time in Canada when we too couldn’t buy Alcohol on Election Day (idea being that “the evils of drink” could influence the vote) … as someone over 50 I definitely remember this being so (altho a quick GOOGLE and I wasn’t able to turn up any specific info on when those Laws were repelled by the various Provinces… I assume that they no longer exist now in Canada)

BUT that doesn’t mean that there aren’t equally quirkly laws about alcohol here now…

The only one day I know of in Canada, where the sale of alcohol still has limitations (versus a Statutory Holiday where things may be closed entirely) is in some places on Remembrance Day (November 11th) when Alcohol is not sold / served until AFTER Remembrance Services are over (so after 12 Noon)
