New York City is set to begin counting its more than half a million mail-in ballots Monday — votes that could swing several local races. While the deadline for the state’s local boards of election to receive absentee ballots is Tuesday, the city will at least get a jump on the ones it has so far. As of Friday, the number of mail-in votes received by each borough was: 199,352 in Manhattan; 161,762 in Queens; 106,987 in Brooklyn; 52,049 in The Bronx and 31,351 in Staten Island. The total is about half the 1.1 million absentee ballots requested by residents.
