Tuesday night's absentee ballot count brought Kristin Gaspar's campaign back from the brink of extinction.
Last night's vote count makes her the favorite to win. With just 82,000 of 396,000 remaining votes counted since Tuesday, Gaspar has cut Roberts' lead from 1735 votes to just 560 votes.
If the remaining absentee and provisional ballots are anything like those counted so far, Gaspar wins. Roberts' only hope is if the remaining ballots to be counted are markedly different somehow. This could happen if the registrar is counting some geographies ahead of others, or counted absentees ahead of provisionals.
