Carroll County has a new General Sessions judge. Michael King defeated Larry Logan for the seat. Logan has served 41 years and is the longest-serving General Sessions judge in the state.
The county’s most watched elections were those of the General Sessions judge and sheriff. Andy Dickson won re-election against challenger Tim Pratt. 
A total of 4,873 persons voted in the county general and state and federal primaries.
Brent Bradberry and Bruce Griffey are the new Circuit Court judges. Bradberry was earlier appointed by Governor Bill Lee to fill an unexpired term. Last Thursday, Bradberry ran unopposed. Griffey won the Republican nomination in March and cruised to victory in the August election without an opponent.
District Attorney Neil Thompson replaces Matthew Stowe. Thompson won the Republican nomination in March and had no opponent in the August election.
Chancellor Vicki Hoover was reelected to the office. Two years ago, she won an election to fill the unexpired term of Carma McGee and was re-elected this time without opposition. 
Brock Martin, a political newcomer, is the Republican nominee to serve as the state representative for District 79 defeating Gordon Wildridge. The district includes part of Gibson, Carroll, and Henderson counties. He and his wife, Krista are chiropractors in Huntingdon. He is a graduate of Bethel University. He faces Thomas Jefferson, the Democrat nominee in November. The incumbent, Curtis Halford, did not seek re-election.
Governor Bill Lee was unopposed in the Republican primary. He faces Dr. Jason Martin (D) in November.
There are 11 new county commissioners of the 21-member body. Ten did not seek re-election. Not seeking re-election were Jeremy Fowler, Ronnie Murphy, Steve Parker, John Mann, Vince Taylor, Johnny Blount, Gerald Scarbrough, Paula Watkins, Joel Washburn, and Lori Nolen. Hal Eason was the lone incumbent defeated in the August election.
The Commission now consists of: Jimmy Halford, Randy Long, Darrell Ridgely, Daniel Willman, Lana Suite, Joey Simmons, Larry Spencer, Daniel Thomas, Lin Smith, Joey Darnall, Cyril Ostiguy, Barry Mac Murphy, Jimmy McClure, Phillip Moore, Manuel Crossno, Walter Smothers, Jay Phipps, Willie Huffman, John Austin, Jason Martin and Spiros Roditis.
County Mayor Joseph Butler, County Clerk Darlene Kirk, County Trustee Paula Bolen, Property Assessor Rita Jones, Circuit Court Clerk Sarah Bradberry, Sheriff Andy Dickson, Public Defender Robert “Tas” Gardner, Road Commissioner Ricky Scott and Register of Deeds Natalie Porter all won re-election.
