Seven late-arriving absentee ballots have been counted, but the outcome remained the same in the Feb. 18 primary race for West Allis 5th District alderman, in which Kevin Haass and Gerald Matter advanced to April's general election.
Haass was still the top vote-getter — not surprising, given his 29-vote margin before the last of the absentee ballots were counted Friday.
But of more interest was the result between the second- and third-place finishers, Matter and Wayne Clark, who were only separated, coincidentally, by seven votes when unofficial vote totals were announced late on Feb. 18.
However, in the end, each of those two candidates gained three votes in the final seven absentee ballots counted. (Roy Beaudry gained one vote.)
The final tally was 146 votes for Haass, 120 for Matter, 113 for Clark, 66 for Jim Blask, 41 for Diane Brandt and 32 for Beaudry.
A total of 102 absentee ballots were cast in the Feb. 18 primary. All but seven arrived in time to be counted on the day of the primary.
