PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The final open seat on next year’s Philadelphia City Council could be filled as soon as late today, as elections officials are set to complete the unofficial count in the lone unsettled race, for a Republican at-large seat.

Election night results showed David Oh leading Al Taubenberger by about 150 votes (see related stories).  Now, 13 staffers in the city commissioners’ office are checking some 760 provisional ballots cast.  Assuming registrations and residencies aren’t challenged, they’ll be scanned and counted.

Both candidates were here, along with their attorneys, through much of the morning, but opted to leave until late this afternoon, when it’s expected that count will be complete.

It is, of course, still unofficial, but this should give both sides a clear indication of what the final count will be and could bring this post-election challenge to an end.
