Sunnyside Post: Julie Won Takes Commanding Lead in Race to Represent 26th Council District
Won has a lead of 1,420 votes, according to the results released by the NYC Board of Election Friday night.
Won and Bagga broke out from the rest of the 15-candidate field on the night of the election and were less than one percentage point apart, or 125 votes.
But she benefited greatly from ranked choice voting. Won, a tech consultant and Sunnyside resident, finished with 6,135 votes to his 4,715.
There are still 2,692 absentee ballots to be counted.
The BOE is expected to release the results with the absentee ballots included next week. It plans to have the results certified in the week of July 12 or later.
