It won't include any absentee ballots in its analysis until July 6, making any count before then potentially unreliable.Among the votes counted on election night, Adams trailed both Garcia and Wiley when voters listed their second, third and fourth choices in the ranked choice voting system.Besides Adams, Garcia, Wiley and Yang, other contenders in the Democratic contest included City Comptroller Scott Stringer, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Shaun Donovan, former Citigroup executive Ray McGuire and nonprofit executive Dianne Morales.Stringer, McGuire and Morales addressed supporters after polls closed as early returns showed them trailing the front-runners but did not immediately concede.De Blasio, a Democrat, leaves office at the end of the year due to term limits.The candidates traveled around the city Tuesday doing a last round of campaigning.Wiley was losing her voice greeting voters near her polling place in Brooklyn. "What we celebrate today is that we have a path," she said.Garcia told her supporters, "I know that we're not going to know a lot more tonight, so I want to thank everyone who is here, and everyone who has been a part of this journey."Concern over a rise in shootings during the pandemic has dominated the mayoral campaign in recent months, even as the candidates have wrestled with demands from the left for more police reform.As a former officer, but one who spent his career fighting racism within the department, Adams may have benefited most from the policing debate.He denounced the "defund the police" slogan and proposed reinstating a disbanded plainclothes unit to focus on getting illegal guns off the streets.Wiley and Stringer, battling for progressive votes, both said they would reallocate a portion of the police department's budget to other city programs.Of the top contenders, either Garcia or Wiley would be city's first female mayor if elected.
