JUNEAU, Alaska - The race to hold a southeast Alaska House seat is now tied.

Ballots counted by election officials Friday show Republican Rep. Bill Thomas of Haines tied with political newcomer Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, a Democrat from Sitka. Thomas had led by two votes heading into the latest vote count in the race for House District 34.

Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai said there will be at least 86 absentee ballots to count on Monday. She said there also is a potential of 26 special absentee ballots and any ballots from overseas that might come in before Wednesday's deadline.
