6th District race stays tight

The race between Rep. John Ahern and Democratic challenger John Driscoll remains a nail-biter.

The number of ballots is shrinking, and as the chart above shows, Ahern continues to win the later counts, but by smaller margins.

The winner might not be known until all the votes are counted, and all the so-called question ballots -- those with mismatched signatures or no signatures -- are given a chance to be "cured."

Stay tuned.
