Some Kentucky voters don't know if they can vote in the upcoming special election to replace 7th district State Rep. John Arnold because of new district boundaries.

The boundary confusion stems from redistricting during which Daviess County Clerk’s Office drew new borders in 17 of the 20 local precincts and sent out cards to the affected voters.
