Changes to state law in 2003 and 2005 made it easier than ever for a community to "go wet" or legalize the sale of alcoholic beverages. (It is also easier to hold an election to prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages.) The requirements for having an election to vote on the wet/dry status of a community were relaxed, resulting in a surge of local option elections across the state.
Having more time to recruit a smaller number of supporters encouraged many groups to start petition drives, and many communities succeeded in legalizing the sale of certain types of alcoholic beverages.
