Both candidates – Sen. Daniel Squadron and City Council member Letitia James — have vowed to try to get instant runoff voting legislation passed.
The race for New York City public advocate is likely to draw a very low turnout.
Neither candidate received more than 40 percent of the vote.
Today’s runoff election will cost a whopping $13 million for taxpayers. Meanwhile, the budget for the public advocate office is $2.3 million a year.
