NYC-Mayor: 2nd time’s the charm! New York City Board of Election released updated preliminary rank choice election results from the early and election day vote. When they tried this yesterday they accidentally included 135,000 “test ballots” in their count. This latest count included 19,787 votes that weren’t reported on Election Night. These 19,787 votes are most likely the “missing Bronx votes” but this being the NYC Board of Elections, who the heck knows. Eric Adams leads the Democratic primary by 14,755 votes with 358,521 (51.1%) to Kathryn Garcia’s 343,766 (48.9%). First choice third place finisher Garcia edged out first choice second place finisher Maya Wiley by just 347 votes in the rank choice reallocation so that could change when absentee ballots are counted. Worth noting that 117,327 New York City voters choose neither Garcia nor Adams in their rank choice ballots (about 14.3% of all voters) and had their ballots discarded and got zero say in the final runoff. Roughly 125,000 paper ballots made up of absentee, affidavit and military ballots remain to be counted. CINYC has put together an amazing must see spinning 3rd map of the mayoral primary by state Assembly District colored by the winners so far from the election night vote total, where height equals the number of absentee ballots received. You can see his map HERE. As you can clearly see from CINYC’s map Garcia should have an advantage when the absentee ballots are counted and could very easily overtake Adams and win the Democratic primary. Grab some popcorn because the vote counting could get ugly fast!
