AUDITS, AUDITS, AUDITS: The NYC Mayoral Election

It’s been called an “attack on democracy.” Undermining faith in our “democratic institutions.” It’s even been compared to treason.


Yet after the botched New York mayoral primary race, at least three Democratic candidates are calling for an unprecedented manual recount of the election results, as well as an audit.


“The top three Democratic mayoral contenders are demanding a manual recount of the June 22 primary election if the final vote count has narrow enough margins — a process that would be a first for the city in modern history,” the New York Post reported.


“It is without precedent in a New York City mayoral race or any citywide office,” said election lawyer Stanley Schlein, who represents Kathryn Garcia in her lawsuit against the Board of Elections.
