It is part of the regular elections in, IIRC, early June. If there is no candidate who wins >50% of the vote, there's a runoff on the Nov ballot.

The vast majority of voters don't know squat about the sheriff or his/her performance, therefore they either do not mark the ballot for sheriff (skip that part of the ballot), or just figure "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" (if there isn't any bad news about the sheriff, just reelect the incumbent). That's why LEOs LOVE becoming sheriff: once they get in, the usually stay in as long as they want, sometimes ~30 years!

That's major BAD NEWS for us when they're antis -- once they're in, they feel, rightly, immune to the little political pressure pro-CCWer can apply....
