vote in that municipality; [2001, c. 471, Pt. B, §14 (AMD).]
B. A majority of the votes cast in any municipality on any local option question is
in the negative, the bureau may not issue licenses of the type denied by the negative
vote in that municipality; or [2001, c. 471, Pt. B, §14 (AMD).]

that the existing privilege is to be voided shall immediately surrender it to the
bureau. The bureau shall refund that portion of the unused fee paid.

petition clearly indicates an intent that it do so. No local option vote may be taken
on the same question more than once in any one-year period.
