FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Steve Beshear has signed legislation lifting a Prohibition-era ban on the sale of alcohol at restaurants, bars and retail stores on Election Day.
The House and Senate voted overwhelmingly last month to allow alcohol sales during hours that polls are open.
Kentucky and South Carolina are the only two states that have such bans in place. In the past five years, similar bans have been lifted in Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Utah and West Virginia.
Beshear signed the Kentucky legislation on Thursday.
Election Day alcohol was one of a handful of provisions in the legislation. Beshear touted the legislation Thursday as a measure that modernizes the state's liquor laws and makes it easier for the alcoholic beverage industry to do business in Kentucky.
