Incumbent Paul Swartz moved up a spot to number one among the Democrats running for Washington County Commissioner after absentee ballots were counted Thursday.
Otherwise, the outcome of Tuesday's election was unchanged by absentees. The five top vote-getters in each party will advance to the Nov. 5 general election.
Swartz picked up 140 votes to jump ahead of former vote-leader Jim Brown in the balloting.
Swartz now has 3,727 votes to Brown's 3,710. Incumbent Bert Iseminger finished third with 3,649 votes, Herb Hardin came in fourth with 3,158 votes and Constance Cramer was fifth with 3,011 votes.
