New election system
This Tuesday New York will launch a new voting system according to priorities, where voters will be able to vote for up to five candidates, indicating their favorite one to five.
The new voting system in the order of preferences will be done in a vertical column with the candidates, with the ballot in alphabetical order. Each has five horizontal spaces in front of its name.
In each contest, voters select their candidate and the other four in the order of numbers.
At the end of the poll, if a candidate gets 50% of the vote, they win that election. If no one reaches that amount, the person with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated. The person who gets the most votes in the second option will start counting, and those votes will be added to those who got the first place, which may be the winner. If no one still reaches 50 percent, the third, fourth, and fifth options will continue to be added until one adds 50 percent of the vote.
The mayor has 13 Democratic and two Republican candidates.
Polls suggest the two will not get 50 percent, but the fight will be between African-American Eric Adams, a former police officer, former state legislator and current Brooklyn Borough president and former presidential candidate, businessman Andrew Yang.
Catherine Garcia, a white woman who retained the last name of Puerto Rican husband after divorce, is the third choice, with wide possibilities. Competing with her, as a woman, is civil rights lawyer Maya Wiley, backed by congressional Democrat Alexandria Ocazio Cortes.
The city has 43% white voters, she is the only white woman, the majority of the female electorate.
29% of New York voters are Latin, he has a Latin surname and is directly affiliated with 72% of the voting population. There has never been a mayor in New York, we are in the women’s era, and no other candidate has those benefits.
Asians make up 13% of the population, but include Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Hindus and Pakistanis, all of whom are Asians and Mr. Yang is not the only Asian.
