Countywide, Trimble County voters elected in April 1943 by a majority of 274 votes to prohibit alcohol sales within the county’s borders. The subject was a heated topic in the days following the implementation of the National Prohibition Act, which became law in October 1919. The law was repealed in December 1933. Local Option elections were held three times during the decade following the repeal, with the county voting to be dry in 1933 and 1935, and voting wet in Dec. 1936 by a margin of 112 votes.
