There will be no movement in the race for Somerset County Sheriff an earlier than Monday morning at the earliest, the New Jersey Globe has learned.

Just 226 votes separate Bill Parenti and Tim Pino in the race for the Republican nomination for sheriff in Somerset County.

With 100% of the machine votes counted, including all vote-by-mail and federal ballots available as of last night, Parenti leads Pino, 6,981 to 6,755, a 50.7%-49.1% margin.

These numbers represent a small change from the Globe’s report early this morning, with Parenti adding 37 votes and Pino picking up 34.

It is not immediately clear how many provisional ballots were cast or the number of vote-by-mail ballots that will arrive at the Board of Elections before close of business on Thursday.   It is also unclear where the geographic origination of these votes are from.
