North Texans went to the polls with drinking on their minds.

Voters in Cedar Hill, Seagoville, Frisco, and Parker County voted to allow sales of beer and wine in those areas. Frisco also voted to allow sales of mixed beverages in the city.

Sales of alcoholic beverages -- including beer, wine, and liquor -- were also approved by voters in Balch Springs, Aubrey, Sanger, and both the Collin and Denton County areas in Prosper.

In short, every initiative related to the sale of alcohol in North Texas passed -- but that still doesn't mean every city has the same rules.

Aubrey's initiative, for instance, allows the sale of alcoholic beverages, including mixed drinks, which will allow restaurants to apply for a license to serve alcohol in the city.

Frisco's mixed beverage vote will allow restaurants to serve without making customers sign up for a "private club" card.

All the other alcohol elections only approved selling the drinks for "off-premises consumption," in retail stores.
