Brandon Long (Rep.) bested two Independent challengers to win the job of Stone County Sheriff without a run-off. He received 2,738 votes to Dammon McGilton's 1,583 and Tony Trammell's 769.

Three justice of the peace races were also decided.

  • In JP District 3, Tim Hudspeth (Ind.) won against Mark E Givans (Rep.) 292-253.

Local voters rejected all four amendment questions that were on the ballot, and none passed statewide (Issue 3 results were close and were still pending outcome of one county when this was posted).

Watch for complete results in the Nov. 16 issue.
