City Registrar Still Counting 

The City Registrar's office continues to tabulate the results from the remaining 8,000 absentee ballots at 2:30 a.m., with no official word yet on whether Jones' slim lead will hold. One batch of absentees, released by Registrar Kirk Showalter just after 2 a.m., had Jones padding his lead over Bill Pantele by another 47 votes in the 3rd District, which would appear to solidify his mayoral victory.AÿBut that figure doesn't include a smaller batch of absentee ballots calculated earlier in the night.AÿJones appears to have already secured the hotly contested 5th District, winning the five districts needed to become Richmond's next mayor.

Official results are expected to be uploaded to the city's Web site later this morning.
