Kemper County officials are trying to determine how many people voted in the House District 42 race when they should have voted in District 43, and how to proceed once they make that determination.

The Neshoba Democrat reports that a handful of precincts in Kemper County are split.

Some voters in the Preston precinct, for example, vote in District 43 in the race for House of Representatives, while others vote in District 42.

Democratic challenger Michael T. Evans holds a slim lead of
about 150 votes over incumbent Republican incumbent Russ Nowell in the District 43 race.

In the District 42 race, incumbent Democrat Reecy Dickson is the apparent winner over Roy O. VanDevender with about 63 percent of the vote.
