A petition for a wet/dry vote in Owen County recently began circulating, which Owen County Clerk Joan Kincaid said could lead to a costly special election.
The petition asks if Owen contains would be in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages in Owen County.
Kincaid said in order for a special election to be held, a total of 901 registered Owen County voters would need to sign the petition, 25 percent of voters in the last general election.
