WSLS-TV reporter Glenn Howell interviews Raymond R. Robrecht, Jr., commonwealth's attorney for Roanoke County, Va., about the county-wide liquor-by-the-drink referendum. Residents of Roanoke County are challenging the legitimacy of the votes from the Town of Vinton, Va. They believe Vinton should hold its own seperate referendum, independent of Roanoke County. According to Robrecht, if Vinton's votes are omitted, then Roanoke County will have to vote anew because some county residents voted in Vinton precincts and it is impossible to separate county residents' votes from those of Vinton.
