§19-23-23. Further elections restricted.
When a local option election in accordance with the
provisions of this article or the former provisions of this
article shall have been held in a county, another such election
shall not be held in said county for a period of five years, and
within that time the racing commission shall not accept or act
upon any application for any other construction permit within

approval of a permit for the construction of a horse racetrack
another election may be held within such five-year period seeking
the approval of a permit for the construction of a dog racetrack,
and the reverse shall also be true. In the event a horse or dog
racetrack shall be constructed in a county pursuant to a
construction permit issued by the racing commission in accordance
with the provisions of this article, no local option election
shall thereafter be held as to any horse or dog racetrack
constructed and established pursuant to such construction permit:
That a local option election has been held for the type
of racing to be conducted.
