It's a five-way race to become the next Sheriff of Wilcox County.
Earlier this year, the former sheriff, Stacey Bloodsworth, was removed from office after he was charged with abusing three inmates and conspiring to cover up the attacks.
The front yards and intersections in Wilcox County are filled with election signs.
All the candidates were born and raised here, and they are each hoping to become the next sheriff.
"One of the main things I want to do is get the spending under control," says independent candidate Robert "Bob" Addison.
He worked, he says, for 22 years with the Georgia State Patrol. Now he spends time running a wild boar hunting club and farming.
He says he's ready help the department transition from the controversy that took place earlier this year.
"The first thing, of course, is getting back on the right track, and then we're going to tackle the drug problems," Addison says.
Hank Collier, also an independent, agrees they need to address the drug problem.
"That's the main reason I do what I do, specializing in narcotics," says Collier. "The more kids we can keep drugs out of their hands the better off."
Most of his 11 years in law enforcement has been spent in drug investigations.
Collier says he'll bring his expertise to the office.
"I'm experienced in all aspects of the investigation, prosecution of criminal cases," Collier says. "I know what will make a good case, what does not make a good case."
The Republican candidate Mike Martin says he has worked as an investigator and a chief deputy.
"I've got 20 years law enforcement experience. The first 15 in Wilcox County," he says.
The grandfather of three says most people in the county have lost their faith in the top law enforcement office.
"I don't think most of them trust the sheriff's department and I can put that trust back in the county," says Martin.
Samuel McKinney, 28, decided to run as an independent. He says he's worked for the sheriff's office since 2009.
"I just want to restore the faith and support of the community," he said by phone on Friday.
A priority for him, he says, would be to make sure they have a qualified staff.
"One of the first things would be to have the best and well qualified staff working in the department," says McKinney. "That's the only way the sheriff department will operate."
Lonnie Curry is the only Democrat running. He has served as a Chief Deputy in the Wilcox County Sheriff's Office.
We stopped by his house several times to try to speak with him, but never could reach him.
For one candidate to win, they must get 50 percent of the vote plus one. If no one wins a majority, there will be a run-off on December 4.
