NYC Primary Day

Posted: Updated:

It is Primary Day in New York City. Polls are open and will close at 9 p.m.

A new poll shows Public Advocate Bill de Blasio leading among likely voters in New York City's Democratic primary with 39 percent. The Quinnipiac University poll was released Monday.

To find a polling site near you, visit  NYC.PollsiteLocator.com or call 1-866-VOTE-NYC or visit NYCVotes.org to download a poll locator site application.

The latest poll shows former Comptroller Bill Thompson in second place with 25 percent. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is third, with 18 percent.

To avoid an Oct. 1 runoff, a candidate needs more than 40 percent in Tuesday's primary.

A Sept. 3 Quinnipiac poll showed de Blasio with 43 percent, Thompson with 20 percent and Quinn with 18 percent.

Among the candidates for New York City comptroller, a Sept. 4 Quinnipiac poll showed Scott Stringer with 47 percent and Eliot Spitzer with 45 percent.

The primary winners will face each other in the general election in November.

-- Sal Albanese, attorney and former City Council member

-- Randy Credico, political satirist and activist
