Dallas Wet-Dry Vote

I put this together to help me sort it out in my own mind.

Bright green is a dry area that voted to become wet.  Bright red is a dry area that voted to stay dry.  Light green and red are wet areas, same theme.  The yellows were ties (all in dry areas.)

People made this out to be a north-south thing, but there is another aspect to it.  Even in the south, dry areas that were near a wet-dry border still tended to vote wet, and wet ares, and in the north, only dry areas voted to keep the division.  They are the ones who see the money going across the border (like mine north of I-635.)  As much as I would like to make this one out to be about freedom, I think that economics led the charge here.
