Special Congressional Election Causing Confusion

The special election spurred by U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis’ resignation in July is causing other problems because the ballot deadlines for that election are different from those for the general election. Gov. Steve Beshear has set the special election to fill the vacancy for Geoff Davis’ 4th Congressional District seat on the same day as the general election on Nov. 6. Even though the election is on the same day, the deadlines to finalize the ballots are different.
