This afternoon, we received a polling memo generated by Melvin Mitchell’s campaign for DeKalb County sheriff.
The automated survey, conducted among 1,524 likely voters on April 13 and 14, has a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percent.
The poll focuses only on three of the eight candidates. Not surprisingly, the survey puts Mitchell – a sergeant with the Atlanta Police Department — in the lead, with 38 percent. Former DeKalb County CEO Vernon Jones polled 32.4 percent. Jeff Mann, who served as chief deputy under Sheriff Tom Brown and is now interim sheriff, came in at 24 percent
