Sheriff 2020

Henry County voters will head to the polls in 2020 to elect a new Sheriff following the retirement of three-term Sheriff Keith McBrayer. Ten candidates have qualified to succeed him.

On June 9, voters in the Democratic and Republican Primaries will narrow down the field. Seven candidates are running for the Democratic nomination and three candidates have qualified for the Republican nomination.

If no candidate receives a majority of the votes in their respective primary, the top two will advance to a primary runoff on August 11. The general election will be held in November.

Locust Grove News provided each Sheriff candidate with a questionnaire. The community page has shared each candidate’s responses with Moving Henry Forward for inclusion on our website.

Check out the responses from all candidates at the links below:

Democratic Primary: Tony Brown | Marion D. Calhoun | Curtis S. Farmer
