The biggest win for Sunday sales was in unincorporated DeKalb County, where 72 percent of voters approved. The narrowest victory was in Lovejoy, where 54 percent of voters approved, the measure passing by just 29 votes.

After various start dates, stores in those areas will be permitted to sell beer, wine and liquor starting at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
