New York Board of Elections admits tabulation error

Mistake in the vote count

The New York City Election Commission has admitted that an error was made in the tallying of the midterm primary election results among Democrats running for mayor. A statement to that effect was published Tuesday on the body's website.

Earlier in the day, the commission had published the results of the processing of a portion of the mailed-in ballots. That data showed that Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who had previously led in the Democratic primary, had lost much of his advantage.

Hours later, the commission removed the information from its website. Officials said there were "discrepancies" in the figures. The commission said it was trying to establish the reason for this and urged candidates to "be patient". The new information is expected to be published on Wednesday.

The primary elections, which will determine each party's mayoral candidates, were held in New York on 22 June. Their final results are not expected to be known until mid-July.

The election for the new mayor is scheduled in New York on 2 November. Many local media note that the winner of the Democratic primary is likely to prevail in the entire mayoral race. Republican politicians in the race are significantly behind the Democrats in popularity.

The incumbent mayor of New York, Democrat Bill de Blasio, a two-term incumbent, is not eligible to run again.
