Early voting has been heavy leading up to tomorrow`s referendum on banning smoking in restaurants and workplaces in Fayetteville. Nearly 2100 votes were cast by Friday afternoon in the emotional issue, which has drawn protests and various compromises over the last eight months. Washington County registrar Karen Combs Pritchard says about 200 people a day are casting early votes -- a number she says is incredible for a special election. After tabling discussions several times, the city council passed an ordinance banning smoking in restaurants and workplaces, except tobacco retail stores, last September. Tomorrow`s referendum was forced by signatures gathered by Free Choice Fayetteville, a group that opposed the ordinance.
