Just two and a half weeks after the city's primary election, Bill de Blasio officially avoided a runoff with 40.81 percent of the vote. That tally, certified a leisurely four days before a runoff would have taken place, includes absentee ballots and adjusts the final count of machine votes slightly down from 40.9 percent. Thank Manhattan for the extra delay: While the four other boroughs had their results certified by Tuesday, an even two weeks after the election, Manhattan's took til Friday. Timely!
