Smith County to Elect a New Sheriff Today


Smith County residents are going to the polls today and will be deciding who will become their next sheriff. The sheriff’s office is being vacated by Smith County Sheriff J.B. Smith, who has held that position for the past 35 years. The field of potential candidates was narrowed down to two after none of the candidates received more than 50% of the vote in the initial election. That forced a run-off election, which is being held today.

The race is tight and if you’ve driven anywhere in Smith County over the past six months you’ve most likely seen the political signs for Chris Green and Larry Smith.

In addition to this tight race there are several other primary run-off elections happening across East Texas that voters will be deciding who will be representing them in government.

Kay Bailey Hutchison is vacating her US Senate seat and this race is coming down to David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz for the Republicans.  Democrats will decide who will go up against the winner of that race and they’ll choose between Paul Sadler and Grady Yarbrough.

Polls are open today until 7 p.m.  To find your polling location, check here.

Get out there and make your voice count, VOTE!
