Early Voting Schedule

Early Voting is a great way to beat the crowds on Election Day and avoid any stress about making it to your polling place before they close. Three weeks of Early Voting are provided for every election, including weekend voting, at several locations throughout the county. Voters may participate at whichever location is most convenient to them.

Meet the Candidates

Several county offices are on this year’s ballot, including Sheriff and county commission chair. Other countywide offices such as district attorney, coroner, and tax commissioner are unopposed in November with only the incumbent appearing on the ballot.

Perhaps the local election with the most interest from voters is the open seat for Henry County Sheriff, the top law enforcement officer in the county. Ten candidates — including seven Democrats and three Republicans — qualified to succeed retiring Sheriff Keith McBrayer.

Following the primaries, the remaining candidates are Reginald Scandrett (D) (Facebook page | Website) and Jack Redlinger (R) (Facebook page | Website).

Visit our Sheriff 2020 page for more information about the candidates.

Board of Commissioners

Three seats on the board of commissioners are on the ballot. All Henry County registered voters may participate in the county chair election between incumbent June Wood (R) (Facebook page | Website) and challenger Carlotta Harrell (D) (Facebook page | Website).

In commission district I, representing southeast Henry County, incumbent Johnny Wilson (R) (Facebook page | Website) was the only candidate to qualify. He will most likely be re-elected to a second term.

Commission district II represents southwest Henry County. Incumbent Dee Clemmons (D) (Facebook page | Website) faces Steve Richardson (R) (Facebook page | Website) in the November election.

Board of Education

Three seats on the board of education were decided earlier this year. Pam Nutt and Holly Carter Cobb were re-elected in districts I and III, while newcomer Makenzie McDaniel was elected in district II. He will join the other board members in January.

Other County Offices and Ballot Referendum

In addition to the positions above, Henry County voters have a choice for Clerk of Superior Court and a local referendum to allow Henry County and the four cities to create tax allocation districts. Visit here for more information about the local referendum.

Candidates for Clerk of Superior Court include three-term incumbent Barbara Harrison (R) (Facebook page | Website) and Sabriya Hill (D) (Facebook page | Website).

Elections for district attorney Darius Pattillo (D), tax commissioner Michael Harris (D), and county coroner Donald Cleveland (D) are unopposed by the incumbent.

Georgia General Assembly

Henry County is represented in the Georgia General Assembly by two state senators and eight state representatives. Please visit our contested races article for links to candidate Facebook pages and websites.

In closing, thank you for your interest in the upcoming 2020 elections. Moving Henry Forward encourages all registered voters to participate at the ballot box. If you notice an error on this page or we missed a link to one of the candidates, please contact the page via Facebook message so that we can correct it.
