We’ll have to wait for absentee ballots and ranked choice counts to know the winners. But this map shows who’s in the lead in each district from the first round count of in-person votes
The June 22 primary vote for City Council is over, and while we’re far from knowing the results, the city Board of Elections has released some early returns that show which candidates currently have the advantage in each of 51 districts.
Most of the roughly 300 candidates ran in Democratic primaries, and many races had long slates of contenders, topped by the 15 who went head to head in Queens’ 26th Council district.
Voters could list up to five candidates in order of preference on their ballots, under the new ranked choice voting system launched this year. The final results of the primary vote will not be known until all absentee ballots are in and the Board of Elections then conducts its ranked-choice voting tally, likely in the week of July 12.
What we do know, for now, is the number of first-choice, in-person votes each candidate received. Initial results suggest a historic reshaping could be on tap for the city’s legislative body. Click on a district to see the early count.
