People who own property in Charlotte but live elsewhere will have to come to Charlotte on election day to vote in the town’s liquor referendum. Charlotte is the only town in Dickson County that allows non-resident property owners to vote in municipal elections under its charter. Election Administrator Linda Medley said qualified non-resident voters will be able to vote in the referendum at either early voting location in Dickson or Charlotte. However, on election day those qualified non-resident voters will cast their ballots in the state and federal elections at their home precinct and then go to the Collier House in Charlotte to vote in District 1 Precinct 1 for the retail liquor referendum. If the non-resident voters meet the standard qualifications, such as being over 60 years old or outside the county during the election period, then they also can request an absentee ballot for the liquor referendum. The referendum will be available to qualified voters during early voting Oct. 17-Nov. 1 at the election office in Charlotte and the Restoration Church in Dickson. The same liquor referendum was on the 2010 ballot in Charlotte and failed by seven votes. For more information on the referendum or non-resident voting for the town of Charlotte, call the election office at 789-6021.
