Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New York City Mayor Race: What You Need to Know About the Primary Election” – below is their description.
New York City residents are voting Tuesday to choose a mayor to lead the most populous U.S. city’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Polls opened at 6 a.m. and will run through 9 p.m. It will be the first mayoral contest to be decided by ranked-choice voting, which asks New Yorkers to select their top five candidates rather than choose just one.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams led in an Ipsos poll released Monday on the Democratic primary, with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang in second, former city Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia in third and civil-rights attorney Maya Wiley in fourth. The winner of the Democratic primary is heavily favored to win the November general election.
Early voting ended Sunday afternoon with nearly 200,000 people casting their ballots. That’s more than one-fourth of the roughly 700,000 New Yorkers that went to the polls in 2013 when Mayor Bill de Blasio won the Democratic primary.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
