Special Election In Western Ky. Causes Confusion

OWENSBORO (AP) - An upcoming special election for state representative in western Kentucky is causing confusion partly due to legislative redistricting.

Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce President Amy Jackson told the Messenger-Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1enKdkp) that many people aren't sure whether they can vote in the Dec. 10 election. The chamber is heading up drive encouraging people to cast ballots.

The Daviess County Clerk's office recently drew new borders in 17 of the 20 local districts and sent out cards to affected voters, but Jackson says there's still confusion about who can vote.

Voters will chose between Republican Suzanne Miles of Owensboro and Democrat Kim Humphrey of Morganfield. They are running to replace Democrat John Arnold of Sturgis, who stepped down after being accused of sexual harassment.
