The city’s Board of Elections (BOE) on Tuesday night, July 6, released updated results from its preliminary ranked-choice voting (RCV) calculations for the Manhattan borough president race and local City Council contests.

Results had been expected to be released earlier, but following tabulation errors in the mayoral race, the BOE elected to hold off on revealing results for the local races.

According to the newly released results for the borough president race, Mark Levine currently holds the top spot with 53.7 percent of the vote (99,643 votes) following seven rounds of RCV counting. Brad Hoylman sits in second place with 46.3 percent of the vote.

Results are not yet official — the BOE expects to have certified results by July 12. 

In addition to the borough president race, the BOE released preliminary results for all of the City Council races in Manhattan.
