CITY HALL — City Hall’s last three races — three aldermanic battles that were too close to call on Election Night — remain tight as officials released the latest round of mail-in votes.
Even though the election is over for most, the incumbents and their challengers in the 5th, 33rd and 46th wards are left to wait until April 16 as mail-in ballots continue to come in.
Any ballot post-marked by Election Day and arriving before April 16 has be the counted. And with all three races so tight, the current leader in any of the three could end up losing.
Here’s the latest:
In the 5th Ward, Ald. Leslie Hairston extended her 152-vote lead over activist William Calloway to 155 votes.
In the 33rd Ward, activist Rossana Rodriguez’s 64-vote lead over Ald. Deb Mell dwindled to just 19 votes.
And in the 46th Ward, Ald. James Cappleman’s 23-vote lead over researcher Marianne Lalonde grew from 23 to 56.
