◼ Too close to call; Atkins and Bonino neck-in-neck in race for Eureka's 2nd Ward seat - Kaci Poor/The Times-Standard
Incumbent Linda Atkins and challenger Joe Bonino remain locked in a tight race for the Eureka City Council's 2nd Ward seat, with preliminary results released Tuesday night showing a race too close to call.
Atkins held a 208-vote lead at midnight, garnering 50.75 percent of the vote in the third report of preliminary results, with Bonino following at 48.07 percent, and write-in candidate Charlie Bean coming in third with 35 votes. Humboldt County Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich said early Tuesday evening that the race is unlikely to see a clear victor until later in the week.
Crnich said a large number of vote-by-mail and provisional ballots submitted Tuesday still need to be verified and counted over the next few days, likely leaving several local races in limbo.
