ELECTION 2020: Latest figures are in for the Scenic Rim council election, putting incumbent Greg Christensen well ahead of the pack.

Incumbent Greg Christensen still leads the Scenic Rim mayoral count for 2020, with former mayor John Brent and candidates Tom Sharp battling it out for second place.

Latest results show Cr Christensen now has 7398 votes and more than 33 per cent of the formal tally.

On Tuesday Cr Christensen said he was not yet prepared to claim victory and that he was focused on his role as head of the local disaster management team dealing with the COVID-19 crisis affecting everyone in the Scenic Rim.

"I am confident, but I will save my comment..." he said.

Mr Sharp said there was a long way to go before all postal votes were counted.

"Anything can happen," he said. "It will definitely come down to preferences."

Cr Christensen did not include preferences on his how to vote cards but Mr Sharp said he and two other candidates did.

Dr Christopher Summers had Tom Sharp in the number two spot, as did Mr Brent.

"I had myself as number one, Chris Summers at number two and John Brent at three," he said.

Updated results were slow to appear on the Queensland Electoral Commission website due to technical issues on Saturday night and staff adhering to COVID-19 regulations during the count.

Large numbers of postal and phone votes need to be taillied.
