Tuesday is primary day in New York. Voters will be casting ballots in a host of races in New York City.

City Controller William Thompson, Queens City Councilman Tony Avella and nonprofit manager Roland Rogers face off in the Democratic primary for mayor. The winner will face Mayor Michael Bloomberg in November.

City Council members Melinda Katz, John Liu, David Yassky and David Weprin face off in the race for comptroller.

Councilman Bill de Blasio, former Public Advocate Mark Green, Councilman Eric Gioia, civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel and Brooklyn lawyer Imtiaz Syed are the entries for the Democratic primary for public advocate.

Democrats in Manhattan vote will choose a new district attorney. The choices: Richard Aborn, Leslie Crocker Snyder and Cyrus Vance Jr. The primary winner essentially wins the job because no Republicans are running in the general election in November.

The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
