Incumbent sheriff Rick Walter has won the Democratic primary in Scott County, gaining re-election to the post he's held for two terms.
Walter took 2,047 votes to 526 for challenger Paul A. Johnson, police chief of Morley.
Another incumbent sheriff, Leo McElrath, faces a challenge from two -- Darrin Shell and Denny Cato -- in the Republican primary in Bollinger County.
However, the vote counting has been delayed by technical problems, and ballots are now being hand counted.
Look for updates later.
