FARMINGTON, NM (AP) -

Voters in New Mexico's Four Corners region are set to decide whether restaurants in unincorporated San Juan County can sell beer and wine with food.

The Farmington Daily Times reports that the election Tuesday comes after Chris Taylor, the owner of Fisheads San Juan River Lodge, collected enough signatures to force the county to hold the election.

If voters approve the measure, to qualify for a license, 60 percent of a restaurant's gross receipts would have to come from the sale of food.

Taylor says restaurants need beer and wine licenses to be successful in unincorporated areas.

Voters include residents of Navajo Nation communities, even though beer and wine licenses would not be allowed on the reservation if the measure passes.
