The city’s Board of Elections released a full list Wednesday of votes tallied in the mayoral election, revealing more than 22,000 write-ins. Although none of the candidates were close to surpassing Mayor Bill de Blasio’s tally of nearly 760,000, there were some noteworthy — if not honorable — mentions during this election cycle. Here are some of the more curious names New Yorkers vouched for, in descending order of votes: Michael Bloomberg: 957 Hillary Clinton: 240 Christine Quinn: 195 Barack Obama (includes one misspelled vote): 45 Donald Trump: 22 Aaron Judge (Yankees outfielder): 10 Stephen Colbert: 7 Beyoncé: 5 Chirlane McCray: 2 Big Bird: 1 David Bowie: 1 Donald Duck: 1 Obi-Wan Kenobi: 1 Ed Koch: 1 Jon Snow: 1 Tony Stark (aka “Iron Man”): 1 Jon Stewart: 1 Adam West: 1 By Ivan Pereira firstname.lastname@example.org @IvanPer4 Ivan has been a staff reporter with amNewYork since May 2012 and covers breaking news, politics and enterprise stories.
