Democrat candidates in NYC mayoral race demand 'unprecedented' manual recount - days after 135,000 test ballots were included in results

The three leading Democrats in the race to be New York City mayor have demanded a manual recount of primary votes if the results are razor thin, days after election officials admitted they'd accidentally added 135,000 test ballots to the initial total.

The manual count would be a first for the city in modern history, and comes as frontrunner Eric Adams maintains a narrow margin over rivals Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley.

Adams, Garcia and Wiley have all filed petitions in court to give them the option of challenging the result, the New York Post reports.
