Guide to Ocean City's BYOB Referendum
Everything you need to know about the May 8 municipal election.
It all began—in a 21st-century sorta way—with a Facebook page.
And now, about 475 days and several thousand Ocean City Patch comments later, it will all come to an end on Tuesday: the Great BYOB Debate of 2011-12.
Voters go to the polls on Tuesday, May 8, to decide a binding public question on allowing "Bring Your Own Bottle" (BYOB) restaurants in Ocean City. Voters from each of the city's four wards will also pick representatives for City Council.
