Maloney Certified as Victor in NY-12 Democratic Primary

NEW YORK – On August 4, the New York State Board of Elections certified its results for the 2020 primary, including the NY-12 race, which was won by incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney with a decisive winning margin after all valid absentee ballots were counted.

Said the Congresswoman, “I’m thrilled the voters of NY-12 have decided to return me to Congress for another term, with a decisive winning margin that clearly reflects the will of the voters. This has been a historic election, with historic turnout and participation – and a historic wait time for results. We’ve learned many lessons for November, and must take a number of actions to protect the safety of our vote in the general election.”

She continued, “These include: increased funding for the post office, an end to measures taken by the President that might impact timely delivery of applications or ballots, and conducting oversight to ensure that voters have faith in the results of their elections. In addition to my work on this at the Federal level, I will support my state colleagues in their efforts for election reform to solve the challenges we have seen here in New York.”

Maloney also applauded a Federal court decision that called for the counting of those ballots that were received by the Board of Elections on June 24th and 25th without a postmark. “While these ballots do not change the result of the election, it is important that every valid vote in our primary be counted. I look forward to working with our party to ensure resounding victory in November.”
