New York City May Witness Highest Voter Turnout Ever In Elections, Says Deputy Mayor

New York: As votes continue to be counted, the New York City could observe the highest turnout ever in the presidential elections, said the city’s deputy mayor.

Around 1.2 million people have voted in-person on the election day, having a cumulative turnout of 2.3 million who have voted so far, the New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

There are still “hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots, more to be counted,” de Blasio said.

Deputy Mayor Phil Thompson said “yesterday could equal or surpass the highest turnout we’ve ever had in a presidential election in NYC, and this is during the pandemic, which meant you know people had to take extra precautions,” as quoted by CNN.

“While the election is “clearly too close to call” on the presidential level, what is clear is “we had both a huge amount of participation and a clean and fair election all over this city all over this nation,” said de Blasio.

“That is a fact,” he added.

He said that the officials were worried about several things, that included the interference from foreign nations, voter suppression efforts, violence and hacking.

“We didn’t see any of those things thank God,” he said.

The counting of cotes are still going on in Pennsylvania and Governor Tom Wolf said there are about 3 million mail-in ballots which are being counted. This may affect the postponement of the results. He said, “we may not know the results even today.”

Michigan has set a new voter record turnout with about 5,107,896 votes, according to a CNN tally. This calculation includes all presidential candidates on the ballot in Michigan.

This record was set when former President Barack Obama won the election in 2008.
