City Hall had tabulated absentees only until about 10:30, but now some votes cast today are starting to come in. Bernard Parks is the only incumbent City Council member anywhere close to falling short of the magic 50 percent-plus-one level at this stage, and even he's over 53 percent. The school board and community college incumbents are well ahead. Things could shift, but there's not a lot of votes out there.
