The third candidate in the race Jack Heath CEO of Lower shore Enterprises came in third with 197 votes.

There are 140 absentee ballots still to be counted tomorrow.

Then there are provisional ballots that will be counted on March 6th and 8th.

Meanwhile, in District 2 incumbent Shanie Shields led businesswoman Cynthia Polk by a 55 to 40 vote margin.

Second place however is too close to call with April Jackson just one vote behind Polk according to unofficial results.
