Why the inconsistencies in NY-12 (Carolyn Maloney's district)?

NY Times and Poltico have Suraj Patel ahead:

1. Simple..NYT and Politico are way behind in reporting, its at least 81% reporting, they have less..

 

No inconsistencies, no-one has been declared winner but the ones currently with Patel ahead are way behind

2. That's inconsistencies

The other two are reporting 100%. If it's 81% like you say, wouldn't that be inconsistencies? Also, the Times is usually good with election results.

Edit: NPR dropped it to 81%. I assure you they had it at 100% a little while ago.

3. NYT & Politico are just slower reporting, when they get to 81% they'll match..

 

its what the result is at 100% that's up in the air. I do agree on NYT they are usually more on the ball and updated the quickest.

4. I edited my reply

NPR has it at 81% now, before they had it at 100%.

5. From the NYT live analysis

"In Carolyn Maloney’s district, where she’s ahead by less than two percentage points, almost 79,000 absentee ballots were sent to voters. About 11,000 have been returned so far."


Part of her district is the Upper East Side of Manhattan, very wealthy, and a lot of people left for their summer homes when the pandemic was raging here a few months ago. (Presumably not in Arizona, Florida or Texas.)

As of 12:30 am from the Times (with 82 percent reporting):

Carolyn Maloney* 13,508 41.6%
Suraj Patel 12,919 39.8
Lauren Ashcraft 4,384 13.5
