Rockland County has released official results. Westchester County has posted an updated "unofficial" tally, but the breakdown from the Board of Elections appears rather close to completion. I can't imagine there will be any further substantive changes. At long last, 24 days after the primary, here are the numbers:
1. Look at that turnout: 78,246: this surpasses the 77,168 voters in the 2016 presidential primary between Clinton and Sanders (although not in turnout percentage) and far ahead of the 2018 governor/AG primary with 63,334. And all this in a June primary!
2. Mondaire Jones dominated the primary. Although he got "only" 42%, he lapped the crowded field. Jones won every town and city except New Castle/Chappaqua (Farkas), North Castle (Buchwald) and Ramapo (Schleifer), where he placed second in each. He won most towns by wide margins.
3. Carlucci's 2018 primary voters abandoned him in startling numbers. While Carlucci got 13,066 (54%) primary votes in his victory less than two years ago, Senate District 38 voters gave him only 6,685 (21%) this time with much higher turnout in S38 (31,861 v. 24,240).
Next post we'll start looking at the final money numbers.
