A judge ordered a special election to take place for two precincts.

Circuit Clerk Daryl Burney says the special election was called because four absentee ballots were not properly filled out.

Roughly 2,200 live in the two precincts.

Burney said they’re going to add the totals from the general and special elections to determine the outcome.

At this time a date has not been set for the special election.
