Frontrunner keeping a close eye on results

As at 7.50 pm Saturday, Tony Williams was out in front with 21.27 per cent of the near 16,000 votes counted.

Mr Williams was at the Kalka Shades Hotel, keeping a keen eye on the results with his supporters.

He said it was too soon to predict the ultimate vote for mayor, given the preferential votes.

Mr Williams said that, regardless the mayoral by-election outcome, he wouldn't have time to rest on his laurels, given the amount of existing council matters to get through.

The Morning Bulletin will bring you electoral updates throughout the post-election hours.
