Adam Mansfield won the race to be the sixth Lawrence City Commission candidate to advance to the April 3 general election.
Mansfield lead Jennifer Chaffee in the primary election, 522 votes to 521, before Friday morning's count of provisional ballots. Mansfield picked up 14 votes in Friday's count; Chaffee gained six. That gave him an overall lead of 536 to 527 a margin of nine votes.
Provisional ballots were set aside during Tuesday night's count of primary election votes because of questions about their eligibility. Officials decided Friday to discard 15 votes that didn't meet requirements, but counted 60 remaining ballots that were determined to be proper.
Mansfield joins Sue Hack, Marty Kennedy, Erv Hodges, David Dunfield and Scott Bailey in the general election campaign.
