The coroner's job is among those being filled by Jackson County voters as they finish their work at the polls today.

Alex Crawshaw, a local funeral director, is seeking the position of coroner as a Republican. He faces incumbent Thomas Kupferer, a Democrat and physician who has served as coroner since 1996.

With 56 of 56 precincts reporting, Kupferer leads with 10,974 votes to Crawshaw's 10,804, as reported by local election officials. Crawshaw led for much of election night until the final precincts came in.

Current vote totals may not yet include all ballots cast in this election, and they won't be final until canvassed by elections officials.
