There seems to be some confusion about where to vote for those who live in the Mission area. Do you vote in Midland or in Odessa?

Well apparently, you vote in both.

Election officials say voters who live in the area are in Midland County but are in the City of Odessa.

As such, they have to vote for state and federal races including the Presidential Election in Midland then they can head over to Odessa and voice their choice in the Mayor's race in that city.

Election officials in Odessa say there's even a special ballot for those voters.

Voters who see more than just the Mayor's race on their ballot are asked to notify a clerk immediately.
