A small margin determined the winner of the race for a seat on the Webster County Board of Supervisors in District 4.
Merrill Leffler came out on top of the three-way race by just 11 votes, or .35 of a percent.
Leffler, of Fort Dodge received 1,472 votes, or roughly 46.61 percent.
He was challenged by Democrat Marcy Lundberg, of Fort Dodge.
Leffler campaigned on a promise to continue expansion at the North Central Ag Industrial Park west of Fort Dodge while also improving cooperation between Webster County and the city of Fort Dodge.
"I had a really good group helping me campaign," said Leffler. "This is a tough district to win, and I am very happy with the way the things turned out."
Lundberg received 1,461 votes, or 46.26 percent.
Lundberg said with a close race there is a chance the outcome could change as absentee ballots continue to come in.
"If this is the end result I congratulate Mr. Leffler, but with outstanding absentee ballots that could change the outcome," she said.
Eugene Newsome, who was nominated by petition received 225 votes, or approximately 7 percent.
Newsome ran as a Democrat against Lundberg in the June 5 primary and was defeated 129 votes to 80.
Newsome was unavailable for comment Tuesday evening.
The District 4 seat, held by Clark Fletcher since 2010, become vacant due to realignment of supervisor districts. The new District 4 consists of precincts 1, 3, 6 and 7 within the city of Fort Dodge.
The District 4 supervisor will serve a two-year term.
Fletcher sought re-election in the realigned District 5
"I look forward to working with everyone, I am ready to dig in," said Leffler.
