The Board of Elections in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York posts results as they come in from the precincts. By studying the sets as they come, and looking when it was at 1.15%, and now up to 3.82%, many of the third party candidates are hovering at about the 1% mark. Previous calculations by Green Party campaign staff hypothesized that at 1%, a party would probably achieve the 50,000 votes for Governor needed for automatic ballot status.
Kristin Davis of the Anti-Prohibition Party has been doing even better, with her percentages in the 3% to 5% range, depending on the set of districts reported. A sample snapshot of the results is below. There will also be an automatic recanvass, so tonight’s results are not official. You can follow the Suffolk County results: here.
