The Clark County Elections Office posted its first batch of results Tuesday night for school board, city council and other local races on the November ballot.
The race has gained attention over a proposed oil terminal at the port. LaBrant opposes the energy project, while Ross supports it.
In the race for Clark County Council, unaffiliated candidate Marc Bolt leads Democrat Mike Dalesandro by 1,500 votes in the race for the county-wide, at-large seat. Republican Liz Pike entered the race as a write-in candidate and trails Bolt by 10,000 votes.
In the race for Clark County Council's District 2 position, Republican Julie Olson leads Democrat Chuck Green by about 600 votes.
This election marks the completion of the county's new form of government voters pass last year.
Slightly more than 23 percent of ballots have been counted in Clark County. An estimated 30,000 ballots remain to be counted, elections officials said.
The County Clerk's Office expects the next batch of results to be released by Wednesday evening.
