Early voting begins Wednesday and registered voters can begin casting their ballots for the next Dickson County sheriff, an elected position that opened following Jeff Bledsoe’s resignation in June. 

Early voting continues through Oct. 29. Election Day is Nov. 3. 

Bledsoe left the county sheriff role after nearly a decade to accept his current job as executive director of the Tennessee Sheriff’s Association. 

Jerone Holt, who served as chief deputy under Bledsoe, was named interim sheriff until after the election outcome. 

The sheriff candidates were asked to provide answers to three questions. The candidates for the position are Jeff Alexander, Tim Eads, Jerone Holt, Kenneth McCallister and Jeremy Wall. 

The following are the questions and answers provided by the candidates. Each was given a 400-word limit for their answers.
