HOCKLEY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - Ray Scifres has a significant lead in the early voting for Hockley County Sheriff, capturing 94.47 percent of the early vote.

That represents 4,086 votes for Scifres, while write-in candidate James Warren has just 171 early votes.

Last month, Warren accused Scifres of violating state election law by not keeping his distance from a polling place, but Scifres said that was not true.

We spoke with both candidates about the accusation. Details at the link below.
