The NYC Board of Elections reports that there remain almost 80,000 uncounted paper ballots from Tuesday's primary election. Neal Rosenstein, government reform coordinator for NYPIRG, explains why so many voters encountered problems at the polls -- and how their votes factor into the odds of a runoff between Bill Thompson and Bill de Blasio.
