Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Kathryn Garcia Greets Supporters as NYC Votes for Mayor” – below is their description.
Thirteen Democrats and two Republicans engaged in a last effort to rally supporters Tuesday as voters cast their ballots in New York City’s mayoral primary, the first citywide election to use ranked-choice voting.
Several candidates in the race to succeed Mayor Bill de Blasio have the potential to make history if elected. The city could get its first female mayor, its first Asian American mayor or its second Black mayor, depending on who comes out on top.
Former city sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia is trailing front runner Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president.
With the debut of the ranked voting system and a mountain of absentee ballots still at least a week away from being counted, it could be July before a winner emerges in the Democratic contest.
After polls close at 9 p.m., New York City’s Board of Elections plans to release partial results of votes cast in person, but that initial picture could be misleading because it will only include data on who candidates ranked as their first choice.
The ranked choice system, approved for use in New York City primaries and special elections by referendum in 2019, lets voters rank up to five candidates on their ballot.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
