The 2021 New York City mayoral election is scheduled for November 2, 2021. New York residents will vote on a candidate to replace incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio when his term ends on December 31, 2021. Due to term limits, de Blasio is not eligible to seek a third term.

On June 22, 2021, Brooklyn Borough President and former police officer Eric Adams won the Democratic mayoral primary[1] and Guardian Angels founder and radio talk show host Curtis Sliwa prevailed in the Republican mayoral primary.[2] The 2021 primaries were the first New York City mayoral election primaries to use ranked-choice voting rather than the plurality voting of previous primaries.[3][4] In the final round of ranked-choice voting in the Democratic primary, Adams defeated former New York City Department of Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, 50.4%–49.6%. Sliwa defeated New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers founder Fernando Mateo, his only major competitor, 67.9%–27.8%.

After posting a preliminary tabulation of ranked-choice primary results online on June 29 as scheduled, the New York City Board of Elections issued a tweet stating a discrepancy had been identified. Shortly thereafter, the primary results were removed from the Board's website. Later that evening, the Board released a statement explaining that approximately 135,000 test votes—roughly 14.3% of the reported total—had been erroneously included in the results, and that a new preliminary tabulation would be released the following day.[5]

History[edit]

In 2019, New York City voters passed Ballot Question #1 to amend the City Charter to "give voters the choice of ranking up to five candidates in primary and special elections for mayor, public advocate, comptroller, borough president, and city council beginning in January 2021".[6] The first election in the city to use ranked-choice voting was in the 24th council district in Queens, which took place on February 2, 2021.[7] This was the first time ranked-choice voting was used in the New York City mayoral election.

In 2019, journalists and political commentators predicted several potential 2021 mayoral candidates, including Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr., NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson, NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, and NYC Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.[8][9]

Incumbent Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio was barred by term limits from seeking a third term.[10]

By May 2021, thirteen candidates had qualified for the Democratic Party primary, and two for the Republican Party primary. There are also minor party and independent campaigns for the general election in November.[11]

Democratic primary[edit]

Polling in late January and early February 2021 showed businessman Andrew Yang as the Democratic primary frontrunner, with Adams in second place and Stringer in third place.[12][13]

In April, Stringer was accused of sexual abuse by Jean Kim.[14][15][16] Stringer denied the allegations, claiming that the relationship had been consensual.[17] In June, a second woman accused him of sexual misconduct.[18]

On May 5, 2021, Politico reported that a recent poll found that Eric Adams was leading the Democratic primary contest; this marked the first the first time since January that any Democratic candidate other than Yang had led in a public poll.[19] On June 7, Spectrum News reported that Adams had maintained a lead in the Democratic primary.[20]

On July 6, the Associated Press reported that Adams had won the Democratic primary.[1] The Guardian stated that Adams, a "former police captain", had prevailed "after appealing to the political center and promising to strike the right balance between fighting crime and ending racial injustice in policing".[21] An earlier report from The New York Times asserted that Adams had run as a "working-class underdog" and had "hammered away at the message that he was the only candidate who could tackle both crime and police reform".[22]
