Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is poised to become New York City’s 110th mayor after the city’s Board of Elections (BOE) released the bulk of the absentee ballots that included ranked-choice voting (RCV) of those ballots Tuesday night, July 6.

According to the unofficial results of the Democratic mayoral primary, Adams received 50.5% of the vote (403,333 votes), while former Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia finished second with 49.5% (394,907 votes) — a razor-thin 8,426 vote difference.
