New York City has embarked on the biggest ranked-choice voting election in American history with the Democratic primary for mayor on Tuesday. Plenty of New Yorkers are looking for advice on how to fill out their ballots to help their favorite candidates — or to try to block other candidates they don’t want in City Hall. As a longtime planner and champion of ranked-choice voting, I’ve pulled together some guidance for marking your ballot for a variety of scenarios involving the mayoral candidates, in particular Eric Adams, Maya Wiley, Kathryn Garcia, Andrew Yang and Scott Stringer. Among the upsides: In Tuesday’s primaries, races up and down the ballot have multiple candidates of color and women, and in ranked-choice voting, none of them have to worry about split votes. This helps to explain why RepresentWomen and FairVote show sharply rising success for underrepresented candidates.

New York City police often face few consequences for violating use-of-force guidelines. Using lawsuit data from and recently published data from the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), Insider found thousands of cases where police allegedly broke department guidelines and the prohibitions around stop-and-frisk. Meanwhile, as the New York Times reported in 2021, police unions oppose even minor reforms; major New York City unions sued after the city instituted a ban on chokeholds. NYPD officers at a protest following the killing of George Floyd on May 31, 2020 in New York City. But according to CCRB data, 18 officers have been accused of conducting a body cavity search since 2018, and only one of those officers faced disciplinary consequences.

Eight candidates to be the next mayor of New York City — the country's largest metropolis — sparred over housing, homelessness and education Wednesday evening in the third and final debate before next week's Democratic primary. Whoever wins the primary Tuesday is likely to win the Nov. 2 general election, given the city's large Democratic voter base. However, turnout tends to be low in New York City primaries. The two-hour live, in-person debate was moderated by NBC New York, Telemundo, Politico, the Citizens Budget Commission and the New York Urban League. All but three raised their hands in support; Stringer, Morales and Wiley said no.

(Reuters) - The eight leading candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for New York City mayor exchanged jabs on Wednesday over public safety, housing and homelessness at the final televised debate before Tuesday’s primary election. Adams piled on, calling Yang’s plan “Monopoly money.”Much of the debate’s early clashes focused on public safety, which has been the No. 1 issue during the campaign thanks to a spike in violent crime around the city. Adams, Yang and former sanitation chief Kathryn Garcia, considered more moderate candidates, have proposed beefing up the police department in response. Adams, Wiley, Garcia and Yang are widely seen as the top four candidates, based on public polling.

Maya Wiley’s bid to become mayor of New York City is based largely on her promise to overhaul the Police Department, and she often highlights her one-year stint as head of the city’s police watchdog agency, the Civilian Complaint Review Board, as evidence of her commitment. In particular, she focuses on the agency’s role in the 2019 firing of Daniel Pantaleo, the police officer whose chokehold led to Eric Garner’s death in 2014 — a flash point that became the impetus for the Black Lives Matter movement. But a review of her time leading the agency paints a more complicated picture of her actions in that case and of her experience holding officers accountable. Her critics say that the board felt more beholden to City Hall during her tenure, and they charge that the agency’s management and performance suffered. Ms. Wiley also faced criticism that she did not use her time at the board, where she was chairwoman from mid-2016 to mid-2017, to pursue cases more aggressively.

As the candidates for mayor of New York City barrel into the final stretch of an unpredictable contest, time is running short for standout moments and efforts to redefine the race. Indeed, one of the last chances to reorder the contest arrives on Wednesday night, as eight candidates gather for the final debate ahead of the June 22 Democratic mayoral primary that is almost certain to determine the city’s next mayor. Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, is widely regarded as the front-runner and is expecting to be a focus of attacks again, allies say. He has strong support among Black voters and is connecting across the city with New Yorkers who are motivated by fears of crime, polls show. Kathryn Garcia, a former sanitation commissioner; Maya Wiley, a former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio; and Andrew Yang, a former presidential candidate, are also considered among the top candidates, and one of them could still pull ahead in the final days of a turbulent and rancorous race.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released a video on Wednesday detailing her endorsement of Democratic New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley. With less than a week to go before the city's Democratic primary, early voting is already underway, and the crowded field is further complicated by the city's debut of ranked choice voting. Ocasio-Cortez appeared with Wiley at a campaign rally outside City Hall in Manhattan last week to announce that Wiley would be her first choice of candidates in the city's new ranked-choice electoral system.

The final debate among the leading Democratic candidates for mayor of New York City takes place Wednesday evening from 7 to 9 p.m.After last week’s debate, which featured only five of the top contenders, eight candidates will return to the stage: Eric Adams, Shaun Donovan, Kathryn Garcia, Raymond J. McGuire, Dianne Morales, Scott M. Stringer, Maya Wiley and Andrew Yang. The event comes as some 64,000 New Yorkers have already cast their ballots in person since early voting opened on Saturday. Limited available polling suggests the race has begun to coalesce around a few candidates, but it also shows some voters remain undecided. It will be the last high-profile opportunity for voters to hear the contenders discuss their policies and visions of recovery before the June 22 primary.

New York City’s local elections are in full bloom, and all through town, Democrats are having a rollicking time. On Saturday night, Maya Wiley supporters were treated to a concert by the Strokes. Last week, outside the first in-person mayoral debate last week, rival campaigns gathered on West 57th Street. “House, everybody needs a house!” he shouted as voters bopped to the beat and nodded in approval. In the crowd, Moises Perez of Washington Heights said Ms. Wiley was No.

Live Live Updates: Final Democratic Debate for New York Mayor Begins Eric Adams appears to be the front-runner, but Maya Wiley and Kathryn Garcia are close behind, and other candidates will be looking to improve their fortunes during their final encounter. Before running for president, Mr. Yang had a mixed record as an entrepreneur. Mr. Yang has positioned himself as New York City’s chief cheerleader, running for mayor as an optimistic government outsider. Blue for The New York Times For the first time in a mayor’s race, New York City will use a system called ranked-choice voting. The same system will be operative for all city elections, including for seats in the New York City Council and the offices of the borough presidents, the public advocate and the New York City comptroller.

Mr. Adams defended himself, saying that he would not allow stop and frisk to be used to abuse people. “Mentally ill homeless men are changing the character of our neighborhoods,” said Mr. Yang, who lives near Times Square. Later on in the debate, Mr. Yang returned to his original point. After Ms. Wiley criticized Mr. Adams on stop and frisk, Mr. McGuire and Ms. Morales got into a dispute over the defund-the-police movement. Mr. Yang criticized Mr. Adams for once telling off-duty officers to take their guns to churches to keep them safe.

CNBC reviewed records of donations from leaders on Wall Street who contributed to organizations supporting New York's Democratic mayoral candidates. Two pro-Yang groups, a super PAC and a separate 527 group, received over $3 million combined from financial executives. Wall Street executives gave more than $2 million to a super PAC backing one of their former colleagues, ex-Citigroup executive Ray McGuire. The big money donations demonstrate how important the race is to Wall Street. McGuire came into the race with many expecting the Wall Street money to largely flow toward his candidacy after his tenure at Citigroup.

Political groups are encouraging New Yorkers to vote early to avoid long lines on Election Day. Al Sharpton, the civil rights leader, held a rally on Saturday with several leading candidates to encourage people to vote early. Mr. Sharpton decided not to make a mayoral endorsement this year, disappointing Mr. Adams who had been pushing hard for his support. Still, on Saturday, Mr. Sharpton defended Mr. Adams regarding questions about his residency, saying that Mr. Adams clearly lived in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn, N.Y.As they jostle to get ahead of each other in a crowded and anarchic primary, the Democratic candidates for New York mayor resemble a cluster of bumper cars. On other days, the lead has been with Kathryn Garcia, former head of the city’s Sanitation Department, and even Maya Wiley, who bounced close to the top of the heap this week after receiving an endorsement from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Viewed another way, no candidate in this perverse mayoral election has consistently led in the opinion polls—which this year have been desultory, even a little derelict. To be fair, the pollsters have struggled not only with canvassing opinion amid a pandemic, but also with the novel form of ranked-choice voting introduced for this election. How do you conduct a call in which you ask an already impatient stranger—finger ready to disconnect—who his second, third and fourth choices are?

Eric Adams, the former NYPD captain and president of the Borough of Brooklyn, answered questions about his residency status on Wednesday, allowing local reporters to tour his Central Brooklyn home. "If I'm not at Borough Hall, I'm here," Adams, a Democrat, told reporters inside his ground-floor, red-brick home. The tour came after a Politico New York report raised serious questions about Adams' main residency, which is a requirement to be mayor of the city. Adams said he has used the New Jersey property occasionally but said the Brooklyn home is his main residence. Adams, who has criticized Yang, saying he left the city during the pandemic, was joined by his 25-year-old son, Jordan, during the tour.

The event is the last televised debate before the start of early voting on Saturday ahead of the June 22 primary. Here are some of the ways you can watch and follow the debate:

Eric Adams Draws Fire for Skipping Mayoral Debate
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Anne Barnard | ) sentiment -0.89   time to read: 1 min
Turbulence again rocked the New York City mayoral race on Tuesday, as Eric Adams, a leading contender, came under fire from two directions, even as two rivals, Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley, displayed signs of growing support. Mr. Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, first drew criticism for his decision to skip a new debate among the top candidates scheduled for Thursday; he will instead attend a vigil for a 10-year-old killed in gun violence in Queens. Then questions emerged over where Mr. Adams actually lives, after Politico reported some inconsistencies in public records that suggested that he did not live in the Brooklyn apartment where he had registered to run for mayor. During the pandemic, Mr. Adams has often slept in Brooklyn Borough Hall, a habit that he has apparently continued in recent weeks. He also co-owns an apartment in Fort Lee, N.J.

With two weeks to go before the Democratic primary, the progressive left has seemed to have coalesced around a single candidate, relying on a time-honored technique: self-elimination. The candidate is Maya Wiley, the former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio. He was an original progressive favorite, until two women came forward with decades-old allegations of inappropriate sexual advances, causing many progressives leaders to withdraw their support. Next to run into trouble was Dianne Morales, the former nonprofit executive whose campaign mutinied, tried to unionize and then accused her of union-busting. It was a bad look for a woman who has run on empowering the grass roots.
