With all Election Day ballots accounted for, Ocasio-Cortez trounced former CNBC anchor Michelle Caruso-Cabrera by a 70%-19% margin, according to official tallies by the State Board of Elections.
The results do not account for mail-in ballots, since New York allowed all voters the option to apply for them because of concerns about coronavirus. More than 700,000 New York City residents requested mail-in ballots for Tuesday’s primaries, according to the NYC Board of Elections. The question remains: how many voters mailed them back to BOE?
Still, the 51% margin Ocasio-Cortez held over Caruso-Cabrera appeared unlikely to break.
