Following is a table that shows the number of issues voted on each fiscal year between September 2003 and June 2013. The table shows that communities have attempted to legalize some form of alcoholic beverages 665 times in the last six years with an 79.7% success rate.
Separately, the chart shows the elections to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages. There was one prohibition election in September 2005 that failed. There were six prohibition elections that failed in November 2007 and two that passed. One prohibition election failed in November 2008. That is an overall success rate of 22.2%.
Keep in mind that one community can vote on more than one issue in an election. A city may vote to legalize the sale of beer and wine for off-premises consumption and also vote to allow the sale of mixed beverages in restaurants. They have to be counted separately because one could pass while the other fails.
