Democrat Isaac Henry is running for State Representative for House District 37 in North Little Rock, but documents show he's a resident of District 38.

According to a report by KARK, records show Henry's wife owns a house in District 38. His uncle owns a house in District 37, where Henry is registered to vote.

However, the voter status is listed as inactive.

So where does Henry live? According to him, both houses.

"I spend the majority of my time here honestly and we spend our time here.This is my home. This is where I stay and this is where I'm going to live in District 37," said Henry.

Henry says he and his family spend about 50 percent of their time at that home.

Henry will be going head to head against fellow Democrat Jamie Scott in the May primary.
