NYC: Adams likely Democratic mayoral winner based on preliminary final results

Source: New York Post

“Eric Adams squeaked out a likely victory in the city’s Democratic mayoral primary on Tuesday based on a preliminary count of the final vote tally by the embattled Board of Elections. Adams emerged narrowly ahead of Kathryn Garcia, 50.5 percent to 49.5 percent, according to unofficial figures posted on the BOE’s website. The 403,333 votes for Adams gave him an edge of 8,426 over Garcia, who got 394,907. The margin is less than the 14,755-vote spread Adams enjoyed after last week’s count — but it appears to be enough to ensure his victory. That’s because there are fewer than 3,700 of about 126,000 absentee ballots left to count, due to technical errors that voters will be allowed to correct.” (07/06/21)
