With 55 percent of voters casting ballots in the Nov. 8 General Election, County Judge Stacey Avey (Ind.) was re-elected over challenger Jim Nesbitt (Rep.) by 230 votes, 2,659-2,429.
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.
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.
