Nazareth councilman  may have fellow incumbent , according to a report in the Express-Times.

Officials from the Northampton County Election Office, however, would only confirm that need to be counted for the Ward 2 race.

According to an Election Office official, results will remain unofficial until next week, and some absentee ballots have yet to be certified -- which is why the Ward 2 results on Northampton County's website still have Heckman as the winner with 112 votes. Stoudt unofficially came in with 110 votes.

Newcomer , a high school teacher and lifelong Nazareth resident, received 210 votes -- unofficially -- and will take one of the two four-year seats on council.
