NY Board of Elections announces 135k “test votes” were ACCIDENTALLY COUNTED in NYC Democratic Primary

The election was botched

The entire NYC Democratic Party Mayoral Primary has been thrown into chaos as the New York Board of Elections says the counting was completely botched.

As many as 20% of the votes may be invalid. The Board of Elections says that 135,000 “test votes” were accidentally counted. The election was the first-ever ranked-choice vote.

The initial results were that Eric Adams won by a huge margin. However, voters could enter both a first choice and a second choice vote. The final results can not be announced until the second-choice votes are tabulated. Now, it is anyone’s guess when results will be announced. The election has been botched and could result in a major legal battle between candidates.
