Tomorrow, New Yorkers will head to the polls to vote in the Democratic and Republican primaries for mayor.

With Anthony Wiener's campaign drama and Mayor Bloomberg calling the leading Democrat's campaign racist, things certainly haven't been quiet.

The primary winners will face each other in the general election in November. If no candidate gets 40 percent of the vote in a party's primary, then a runoff between the top two vote-getters will be held Oct. 1.

Mayoral Candidates:

Democrats:

  • Sal Albanese, attorney and former City Council member
  • Randy Credico, political satirist and activist
  • Bill de Blasio, New York City public advocate, former City Council member
  • Neal Grimaldi, attorney and former public school teacher
  • John Liu, New York City comptroller, former City Council member
  • Christine Quinn, City Council speaker
  • Erick Salgado, pastor and businessman
  • Bill Thompson, former New York City comptroller
  • Anthony Weiner, former U.S. House member

Republicans:

  • John Catsimatidis, billionaire businessman, supermarket mogul
  • Joseph Lhota, former chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and former deputy mayor in Giuliani administration
  • George McDonald, founder of the Doe Fund, a nonprofit that works with homeless people
