Pigeon Forge's new liquor-by-the-drink election is in one month, and the anti-liquor group that challenged the election is asking for changes before the new vote.

Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge filed a formal request with the Sevier County Election Commission. It wants non-resident property owners to vote by provisional or challenged ballots. The group is referring specifically to people who register to vote, but who own only a small percentage of a piece of property.

The Sevier County Election Commission says they will not honor the request.

The city charter allows non-residents to vote in elections even if they own just a tiny percentage of Pigeon Forge property.
