LONG ISLAND CITY, QUEENS — Among a field of 15 candidates, Julie Won has declared victory in the race for Long Island City's City Council seat after Friday's results showed her with an all but insurmountable lead over her closest rival, Amit Bagga.

Won, who held a narrow 0.8 percent lead on election night, was left with a 13-point lead after a whopping 15 rounds of ranked-choice voting, winning 56.5 percent of the vote against Bagga's 43.5 percent, according to incomplete results released on Friday. Won's win was further solidified on Tuesday, after ranked-choice results and a preliminary absentee ballot count were calculated and pushed her total win to 56.7 percent of the vote.
