The Board of Elections released new preliminary numbers in the Democratic mayoral primary Wednesday, its second try at calculating ranked choice voting results for ballots that were cast in person last week. More than 124,000 absentee votes have yet to be tallied.
This is the city’s second heat wave this year, less than two weeks into summer—and it is breaking a more than 50-year record. Temperatures at LaGuardia Airport were at 100 degrees as of 4:40 p.m. Wednesday, surpassing a high of 97 degrees set in 1964, according to the National Weather Service. Central Park reached 98 degrees, the highest since 2013.
