Introduction to the 2020 New York Primary Election Results

2020 New York primary election results are in and the votes have been tallied! The Democratic race has been an incredibly tight one this year and it looks like former Vice President Joe Biden is the projected winner, with 30% of the vote. New York Senator Bernie Sanders came in second place with 23% of the vote, followed by Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard in third at 14%. It looks like former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg may be dropping out of the race shortly as he only garnered 795 votes, or 5%, throughout the state. And while Biden picked up a majority of delegates (119) to enter into July’s presidential nominating convention, it was still a close fight between some of the other candidates.

This year’s primary election saw an influx of voter participation compared to years past – over 1 million more registered Democrats independently participated than in 2016. These increased numbers may likely have been attributed to motivated first-time voters, significant outreach initiatives from numerous campaigns, and automatic registration programs implemented because of recently passed legislation which made registering more accessible statewide.

So what does this mean for delegates who will be representing their districts and counties on convention day? Depending on regional totals and county campaign trends could heavily affect delegate loyalty pledges; especially if a candidate drops out prior to convention day. We expect there will be further alignments among smaller camps once Biden officially becomes the eventual nominee – assuming Bloomberg truly exits prior to that August date. Another factor that could complicate things is Governor Cuomo’s recent executive order allowing individuals who are unable to attend convention day due to COVID related restrictions or health concerns being able swap their delegates’ representation rights via electronic means in lieu of live voting on January 2020.

All-in-all these 2020 NY Primary Election results were interesting – with different stories emerging along party lines depending on which regions within New York you look at closely. With such increased engagement this early in the process we can definitely anticipate others projecting similar enthusiasm towards November’s general election vote!

Overview of How the New York Primary Results Were Processed

The New York Primary Results were reported by the Associated Press on April 28th, 2020 after polls closed at 9 pm. The primary serves as an important proxy for the general election in November and the impact of each candidate’s performance can have a significant effect on how their campaigns progress. This guide will provide a detailed overview of how the election results were processed and what to look for when predicting the impact of each candidate’s performance in New York.

When polls close in any US state, typically hundreds of volunteers from local county boards are responsible for operating ballot counting machines and providing results to their respective counties. In New York specifically, that process is dictated by Section 5-204(4) which states that “any machine or system for voting used shall be tested immediately before its use to ascertain that it accurately records and counts the ballots; such test shall be accomplished…as prescribed by regulations duly promulgated pursuant to this chapter”. As such, hardworking volunteers must make sure that their machines meet stringent standards before they submit any data publicly or to county officials.

Once they attest to meeting these standards, workers then move onto inputting results into local databases which subsequently sync up with statewide databases curated by county political entities across New York State pursuant to NY Election Law 17-212(14). From there, teams within each county board analyze raw voter returns data including absentee ballots (where applicable), provisional votes, maching tallies – among other pieces of data –to then validate and certify full official tallies for reporting purposes per Election Law §7503.

Once appropriate validation has occurred on a state level by county representatives from across upstate New York, city representatives from Buffalo consolidate their results into a single citywide tally overseen by public disclosure officers overseeing Buffalo City Hall per Action 107AB (a). After this consolidation process has occurred independently within all individual regional offices in upstate NY – every 10 regional cities oversee certification – Albany headquarters consolidates again, this time using reports from each regional office along with precinct analysis collected directly from panelists assigned throughout after polling began to see who was turning out in certain regions more so than others through specific party affiliations.

From here – after validating unanimous agreement at both local & Albany levels – Associated Press received final certification via AP’s election calls system whereby press team members conducted independent verification based upon amended returns submitted prior agreed upon timeslot cut-offs established 2 weeks earlier prior when field researchers began canvassing precincts across 64 different districts throughout NY State beginning 16 days after original polling began between March 1st and April 25th respectively ahead of original Extension Request deadline set May 15th due to pandemic concerns & critical emergency shelter protocol changes instituted within nationwide stay-at-home orders issued March 18th . After two days spent verifying official numbers provided various sources cited above followed subsequent consultation with member organizations representing respected parties , Associated Press finally released its official report confirming Warren leads Sanders among Democrats nationally despite gains shown late in the night within one heavily urban district located Southern Brooklyn which swayed closer toward Sanders followers than originally anticipated given broader trend seen statewide amongst voters & nonvoters alike . Finally , subsequent secondary confirmations provided additional information about exact percentage lead seen amongst Warren supporters over Sanders supporters yet more research remains necessary moving forward if either individual hoping capitalize off initial wins seen during Alburn primary week moving towards national coverage Nov 2020 come Election Day!

Conclusions and Implications of the 2020 New York Primary Election Results

The 2020 New York primary election results were a major milestone for the state of New York and for the outlook of the nation’s upcoming presidential race. The two main takeaways from this election were that Democratic incumbent Senator Chuck Schumer easily surpassed his opponent, challenger Robin Laverne Wilson, by an overwhelming margin of 87% to 13%, while former VP Joe Biden bested Senator Bernie Sanders 52.7% to 45%.

These results have far-reaching implications that cannot be ignored. Firstly, Senator Schumer is now likely to cruise through November’s general election virtually unchecked due to his commanding lead. Furthermore, with this victory under his belt – along with a noteworthy rise in popularity over recent years – it seems clear that he is a force to be reckoned with within both national and state politics.

In terms of the Democrats’ Presidential Primary race, these results serve as a strong indicator that Joe Biden is gaining considerable momentum as we head towards November. Having outperformed Sanders in not only New York but also Florida and some Midwest states (Illinois and Michigan) thus far, it becomes increasingly difficult for Sanders’ camp to paint him as still being in contention for the party’s nomination. These conclusions are further strengthened by analysis showing that most primary voters opted for Biden rather than Sanders on Super Tuesday between the two contenders representing establishment policies versus progressive liberals.

As November looms large on the horizon, one thing remains sure; both Democrats and Republicans will face difficult choices ahead which will continue to shape not just our immediate political future but decades more beyond 2020 on all levels local, state, federal and international. With figures such as Cuomo and Schumer emerging victorious at home here in New York coupled with trends across Democrat primaries indicating increasing support for Joe Biden heading nationwide; it looks like a new dawn may be approaching after all!
