Sarah Parady has pulled ahead into second in the race for City Council at-large, while Serena Gonzales-Gutierrez has maintained her lead in first.

Parady moved ahead of Penfield Tate and Travis Leiker in the tight race for the two at-large spots, which will not go to a runoff, even if candidates earn less than 50% of the vote.

The race has remained close. Gonzales-Gutierrez leads with 19.95% of the vote, followed by Parady with 16.4%, Tate with 15.77% and Leiker with 15.36%.

Following the Wednesday evening results update, Gonzales-Gutierrez claimed victory in her race.

"I'm proud of our city," she wrote in a statement Wednesday. "I am honored and humbled by the trust that Denver voters have placed in me, and by their shared vision of a Denver where working people can put down generational roots."

Parady's late push into second came along with a number of Democratic Socialist candidates in other races who benefited from the later rounds of vote counting. The Clerk and Recorder's Office said they hope to have final results by Thursday afternoon.
