wellington mayoralty closer than it appears

word is that Prendergast only got back in on the 7th preference and is in fact about 1000 votes ahead of Pepperell...

given the revelation about the 800 uncounted votes, the ensuing recounts, and the special still to come there is a very slim chance she may in fact be unseated like her Auckland compadre.

Actually Kerry was ahead by around 9,000 votes on the last iteration.
