After Wednesday’s update from the Registrar of Voters, Mayor Lisa Gillmor increased her lead over Councilmember Anthony Becker.
She leads by 166 votes or 1.02 percent of the vote.
An automatic recount happens if the vote is within .25 percent. Gillmor’s lead is currently 4 times greater than that threshold.
Councilmembers Raj Chahal and Karen Hardy held big leads in their races against Larry McColloch and Christian Pellecchia, respectively.
As of yesterday, 51 percent of expected votes have been counted.
The Registrar will report the counting of more ballots today at 5 p.m.
