Little Rock -- The group trying to get alcohol sales expanded in Arkansas has turned in over 84,000 signatures to get its proposal on the November ballot.

Let Arkansas Decide turned in 84,969 signatures Monday to the secretary of state's office to put its proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot.

The alcohol measure would legalize alcohol sales in all 75 counties. Currently 35 Arkansas counties are dry.
