At press time, Democrat David Butler was in the lead Tuesday over his Republican challenger Ralph Beal in the race for a six-year term as township supervisor, according to unofficial results posted by the Fayette County Election Bureau.
With 67 percent of the vote tallied, Butler had garnered 277 votes to Beal's 80 votes with voting districts two and three providing vote tallies. The township has three voting districts.
Current Supervisor Scott Keefer, who lost in his primary bid for the Democratic nomination to Butler, said that he planned to wage a write in campaign in the race.
Write in votes will be tallied by the county election bureau at a later date.
