Berrien Sheriff race could break records

September 17, 2007

Nashville - A special election will take place in Berrien County Tuesday to elect a new sheriff.

Eight candidates are vying for the seat, left vacant last month when former Sheriff Jerry Brogdon resigned.

The polls will open at 7:00 Tuesday morning and the board of elections expects it to be the largest turnout in Berrien County history. 

 "I don't think we've ever had one, even the presidential race. We've never had this much interest. Not in our county. Last week we had 256 come in for early voting and vote in person and we mailed out 138 paper ballots for absentee voters," says Christina Allen of the Berrien County Board of Elections.

If a run-off election is needed, it will be held October 16.
