Division 4 still undecided

The final count in Divison 4 is still very close, with incumbent Unity Councillor Paul Freebody ahead 191 votes following counting of pre-polling votes.

It's expected, after preferencing from lowest polling candidate Norman Miller, Cairns 1st Kirsten Lesina will close her margin to around 56. This would require a substancial swing on the remaining postal votes, which although unlikely, is not impossible.

Final after pre-polling counted:
Paul Freebody 2,879 (41.57%)
Kirsten Lesina 2,688 (38.81%)
Norman Miller 1,359 (19.62%)
