If you’ve got access to Facebook, you might want to check out the Bryan County NAACP page tonight.

The organization is holding a Bryan County Sheriff Candidate Forum on Facebook Live beginning at 7 p.m., with candidates Mark Crowe and Al Hagan slated to participate.

Hagan, a Democrat and retired Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent who now owns his own polygraph company, ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. Crowe, a former deputy and police chief in Pembroke, finished with 55 percent of the vote after a crowded primary race in which he faced four other challengers.

Both men are from Pembroke and are running to replace longtime incumbent Clyde Smith, who will have 26 years in office when he finishes this term.

The deadline to register for the Nov. 3 general election is Oct. 5, according to the Georgia Secretary of State website, and early voting begins Oct. 12.
