THE top spot on the councillor count in the Southern Downs election is poised to change hands, with Jo McNally having crept to within one vote of Ross Bartley as of this morning.

The two serving councillors, who are all but guaranteed of being returned, are neck and neck, with Cr Bartley on 9881 votes and Cr McNally on 9880.

If the lead changes hands it could increase Cr McNally's chances of becoming deputy mayor, although a vote of all new councillors would be required.

In the mayoral race current Deputy Mayor Peter Blundell continues to increase his lead, now on 5366 votes and just under 3000 ahead of his nearest rival, Mally McMurtrie.

Peter Blundell 5366
