NY7 – Apparently, Absentee and Affidavits Were Already Counted

It appears that the absentee (455) and Affidavits (272) of New York’s Seventh Congressional Districts were already counted and are in the current unofficial numbers from the Board of Elections.

With the added ballots counted, the BOE gives 6,206 votes for Dilan in Assembly District 50 which on Election Day was at least 90% Jewish, and it gives 3,774 for Velazquez. If you shave off ten percent as being non-Jewish votes, Dilan won 5,585 Hasidic votes (62%) in the main Hasidic voting District of Williamsburg and Velazquez won 3,396 Hasidic votes (38%) to a total of 8,981 Hasidic votes between the two in the main Hasidic voting area.

As I indicated yesterday, many hundreds of Hasidim voted in other Assembly Districts that are part of this Congress seats. In those sections of Williamsburg, the Aroynem/Hasidic Velazquez voters are clearly a stronger percent than in AD50; exactly why bias people ignore those ADs altogether. But with this fact in the calculation, the debate is on whether the Aroynem reached 40% of the overall Hasidic vote during the last election or not (likely it did). Either way, it is not the 46% I wrote on election night (due to a pro-Velazquez error by the BOE), but it is above the 33%-35% of the Hasidic vote that Aroynem had in the past.
