A group counts absentee ballots for the New York City mayoral race on Wednesday, June 30. On Tuesday, the City Board of Elections released new numbers that suggested Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams' lead in the Democratic primary had narrowed in the first set of tabulated ranked-choice voting results. But within hours of the new figures coming online, the board backtracked — following questions from the Adams campaign and others — and acknowledged a "discrepancy" in its counting process. It subsequently removed the data from its website. Late Tuesday night, the body put out another statement, this time revealing it had mistakenly included 135,000 test vote records in the initial tally. Dave Sanders/The New York Times/Redux
