Incumbent Roy Keck pulled ahead of challenger Bill O’Neil on Thursday in the tight race for a seat on the Port of Benton Commission.
Keck had a 46-vote lead when Benton County posted updated results Thursday.
Keck had 4,103 votes to O’Neil’s 4,057, or 50.05 percent to 49.49 percent, likely triggering a recount.
Thursday’s update did not change the outcome of any other races in the Mid-Columbia.
The next update will be Friday afternoon. The Nov. 5 election will be certified Nov. 26.
