The city’s elections are mostly over. The Board of Elections on Tuesday night released updated ranked-choice tabulations for the primary election accounting for about 125,000 absentee ballots cast by voters, putting most of Brooklyn’s races to bed given Democrats’ overwhelming majority of registered voters in most areas. Eric Adams won the Democratic nomination for Mayor, while Brad Lander won the nomination for Comptroller and Antonio Reynoso won for Borough President; the three of them are all but certain to win the general, as are most Democratic nominees for City Council seats.
There are a few Brooklyn races, however, that aren’t quite settled yet. For a few Council seats in South Brooklyn, Democrats are certainly the favorites to win in the November election, but Republicans have nonetheless fielded candidates who could at least give the frontrunners a run for their money.
