Though the results remain unofficial, it seems a virtual lock Gwenn Hauck has .
Village Clerk Heather Mailander said Wednesday that the provisional ballots still needing to be counted tallied nine. Hauck, according to unofficial results, captured 1727 votes, leading current mayor Keith Killion, who had 1711.
Absentee ballots, though counted, still must be verified by the county board of elections, Mailander said. The results are likely to be official by next Wednesday, she told Patch.
Unless a significant number of ballots are disqualified, Hauck has claimed the third of three seats and will be sworn in on July 1, 2012.
Councilman Paul Aronsohn and Albert Pucciarelli were the top vote-getters on Tuesday night, each with over 2,000 votes.
