With complete, but unofficial, results tallied in Meridian, Cheri Barry leads Percy Bland in the mayor's race.
In the initial report from city hall, Barry had a 114-vote lead. However, Newscenter 11 learned later that total did not include roughly 600 absentee ballots.
With those votes included in the count, Barry's lead over Bland increased to a 4,866 to 4,562 margin.
In the Ward 3 city council race, incumbent Barbara Henson leads Randle Jennings 856 to 758 votes, and apparently wins her reelection bid.
The Ward 5 council race also changed with the absentee ballots included.
Challenger Bobby Smith leads incumbent John Harris by a margin of 799 votes to 758 votes.
The results will not be official until they are certified by the Meridian Election Commission.
