DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Deadwood Mayor Chuck Turbiville has retained his position by a single vote, though the result of Tuesday’s city election is still unofficial and likely will be recounted.

Turbiville got 165 votes and challenger Georgeann Silvernail 164. Silvernail is a longtime city commissioner.

The City Commission will canvass the ballots on Monday. If nothing changes, Silvernail has vowed to request a recount, which is allowable under state law.

If a recount changes nothing, Turbiville will serve a second three-year term.
