Absentee ballots in the Lexington County sheriff’s race can be cast from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday at the county election office, 605 W. Main St., Lexington.
It’s a four-man race among Republicans from which the new sheriff will emerge since no one else is running.
Candidates are Richland County deputy Justin Britt, criminal justice instructor Ed Felix, Assistant Lexington town Police Chief Jay Koon and West Columbia Police Chief Dennis Tyndall.
The race was created when former Sheriff James Metts stepped down in mid-December after 42 years in office shortly before pleading guilty to a federal misconduct charge.
