The election results are not official until the canvassing at 9 a.m. Friday at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. County Commissioners Jim Flory and Nancy Thellman and Treasurer Paula Gilchrist will decide whether to count 77 provisional ballots.
Shew said 44 of the ballots were cast in Lawrence. Six were cast in Baldwin City, which could become important in the race for a city council seat between Tom Farmer and Chris Nichols. Farmer leads by seven votes.
