ANDREWS, Texas (AP) - Andrews County is staying dry.
Unofficial results show that residents of the West Texas county, where nuclear waste is stored and can be disposed of, voted Tuesday against two proposals to allow alcohol sales.
One measure would have allowed the sale of beer and wine in stores within Andrews County. The other measure would have allow the sale of mixed drinks in restaurants.
Voters in 2007 rejected similar measures that would have allowed beer, wine and alcohol sales.
Andrews, with a population of about 10,000, is about 30 miles east of the New Mexico border.
