The New York City Board of Elections certified the vote totals in the District 36 City Council race Friday evening, and Robert Cornegy Jr. came out on top by a mere 68 votes.
Cornegy edged Kirsten John Foy 4,370 votes to 4,302, locking down the Democratic nomination.
The recount from the Sept. 10 primary had dragged on for more than two weeks, as the more than 14,000 votes cast in the Bed-Stuy district were recounted.
After the machine count was completed, Cornegy led Foy by less than 100 votes, which made for a less than one-percentage point lead. This triggered an automatic recount as well as a paper-ballot count.
Cornegy learned of the news at around 5 p.m. Friday.
