DescriptionWith the caveat that this is shifting story, Rep. Charlie Rangel's lead in his congressional race has gotten smaller, via Hunter Walker: After a re-examination of the votes, the New York City Board of Elections released unofficial results tonight including votes cast in all of the district’s 506 precincts that show Mr. Rangel defeating Mr. Espaillat by a margin of just 802 votes. According to the BOE, Mr. Rangel received 18,075 votes, or 44.29 percent of the total cast, compared to Mr. Espaillat’s 17,273, 42.33 percent of the votes cast. These unofficial results do not include paper affidavit ballots cast by absentee voters and those whose name is not on the voter rolls when they arrive at the polling place. Those paper ballots, which include votes for both candidates, will be counted by the BOE next Thursday and will be the deciding factor in this tight race.
