When Nain residents cast their vote in the plebiscite on August 16, it won’t be the first time.
A similar vote was held in the 90s.
At that time Johannes Lampe was the Mayor of Nain.
Residents were given three options: yes to an alcohol ban, no to a ban or to allow alcohol in the community with restrictions.
The outcome of the vote was in favor of not putting a ban in place.
The upcoming plebiscite only has two options: yes or no to a dry community.
Residents will make their decision on August 16.
