MARION COUNTY
Ivey Wins Nomination in Sheriff's Race: In Marion County, the runoff election was for the Republican nomination for the office of Marion County Sheriff. None of the four candidates received a majority of votes in the Primary Election last May, so the two top vote-getters – Guy Grimsley and Eric Ivey – faced each other in the runoff.
The winner of the runoff election was Eric Ivey, who received 334 votes (57.99%). Guy Grimsley received 242 votes (42.01%).
Now, Eric Ivey will advance to the General Election on November 8 when he will face current Sheriff Derrell Neal, who won the Democratic Primary without opposition on May 24.

CHATTAHOOCHEE COUNTY
Lynch Wins Sheriff's Race
: In Chattahoochee County, the runoff election was technically for the Democrat nomination, but since there are no Republicans running for the office it was in effect to select the next sheriff (since there will be no Republican nominee to face in the General Election in November).
None of the four candidates received a majority in the Primary Election last May, so the top two vote-getters – Henry "Hank" Lynch, III and Michael "Mikey" Sizemore – faced each other in the runnoff on July 26.
The winner of the runoff election was Henry "Hank" Lynch, who received 527 votes (65.63%). Michael "Mikey" Sizemore got 276 votes (34.37%).
