Republican Voter Turnout Was Strong on Long Island, but not in NYC

November 3, 2021 / NYC Neighborhoods / NYC Politics & Government / News Analysis & Opinion / Gotham Buzz NYC. Continued.

 

On Long Island, incumbent Nassau County Executive Democrat Laura Curran [123,317], is trailing Republican Bruce Blakeman [135,128] by 11,811 votes, with 94% of the precincts reporting. That implies only 16,496 votes are left to tally, although there are still the absentee / mail in ballots to be counted, so Curran has not yet conceded.

Democrat Steve Bellone continues as the Suffolk County Executive having been re-elected in 2019. He is serving his third and final term which ends with 2023.

In the New Jersey Governor's race, Democrat Phil Murphy is in a photo finish race with Republican Jack Ciattarelli. At present, with an estimated 88% of the vote counted, Murphy is behind by 1,193 votes out of a total of 2.4 million votes. Absentee ballots will make up a significant portion of what's left to count, and historically those have gone Democratic.

Lastly, the ethnic and gender composition of the NYC City Council is going to change dramatically next year. We highlighted this impending change following the primaries, when most of the NYC City Coucil races were decided in the Democratic primary. Here's a link to the NYC City Council Primary Election Results 2021 in June, where women won a majority of the Democratic Party candidate spots.
