CAROLINA BEACH -- The mayor's race in the town of Carolina Beach is still too close to call. Alan Gilbert received 503 votes, Joel Macon was just three votes ahead with 506. The rules in Carolina Beach say the candidate with the highest number of votes wins. But provisional ballots have not all been counted. The final tally will be next Tuesday. After that the two candidates will be able to ask for a recount if they so choose. Macon said, "No, I will not call for a recount. I will not waste people's time and money with a recount. If Alan wins by one vote, then he wins by one vote. I will not call for a recount." Gilbert was not available for an on-camera interview today. He told us over the phone that he wants to wait and see what happens before deciding if a recount is necessary.
