GARCIA PREDICTS DELAY OF ELECTION RESULTS: As New Yorkers experienced voting by ranked choice for the first time on Primary Day, Tuesday, June 22, as well as in the early voting that preceded Tuesday’s election, at least one of the candidates warned that the results would not be ready by Election night. The Garcia for NYC Mayor campaign estimates that, based on all polling in the Democratic Mayoral Primary, it will be nearly impossible for any candidate to receive over 50% of the vote on Tuesday night — which means there will be no declared winner until the Ranked Choice Votes are counted. Moreover, the deadline for mail-in ballots is June 29, and after the grace period for voters to correct their errors on these, the Board of Elections won’t be counting them until July 12.
