BREAKING:

The New York City Board of Elections on Tuesday night pulled the preliminary ranked-choice vote tally for the city’s primaries after it included tens of thousands of “dummy ballots,” sources told NY1 News, a local cable outlet.
At around 8:45 p.m Tuesday,  the board removed the vote tallies from its website and replaced them with the text “Unofficial Rank Choice Results Starting on June 30.
Spectrum Political  News director, Bob Hardt, stated on Twitter.
“Sources tell me the Board of Elections is going back to the drawing board and running corrected ranked-choice numbers tomorrow. About 130,000 “votes” were part of a test run that were never cleared from a computer.”
NY1 host Errol Lewis- said the dummy votes  never removed from the system, and his sources tell him, they will have to count the ranked-choice voting again. 

 

Hours after the New York City’s Board of Elections released an updated ranked voting tally for the Democratic Primary which showed frontrunner Eric Adams’ lead shrinking considerably, BOE officials acknowledged a ‘discrepancy’ in the ballot count.

On the day of the primary, the BOE reported just under 800,000 votes with 96.6% of scanners reporting. On Tuesday, however, the tally was 941,832 votes – nearly 20% higher, according to PIX11.

“The vote total just released by the Board of Elections is 100,000-plus more than the total announced on election night, raising serious questions,” Adam’s campaign said in an emailed statement. “We have asked the Board of Elections to explain such a massive increase and other irregularities before we comment on the Ranked Choice Voting projection.”

The Board of Elections acknowledged the discrepancy.

‘Some liberal activists on Twitter responded by claiming that Adams has gone “full-blown Trump”
