UPDATES: November 2013

The Election Atlas has been updated with the results from the November 5 general election, incorporating the following new features and analysis:

  • Interactive maps: zoom in on any area of the city to see the results for Bill de Blasio from the 2013 general election; and
  • Analysis of 2013 voting patterns: including vote share and turnout for Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, and comparisons with the 2009 mayoral and 2012 presidential elections.

September 2013 updates — features and analysis about the September 10 primary election:

  • Interactive maps: zoom in on any area of the city to see the voting results from the 2013 primary compared with the 2009 election;
  • Community area (PUMA) voting statistics have been updated; and
  • New analysis of 2013 voting patterns has been added as we look ahead to the general election in November (see the Data and Maps sections).

For more information about the 2013 elections, visit the CUNY Journalism School's #NYC2013: New York's New Era website.

The 2013 mayoral election in New York City is the first in more than a decade with no sitting mayor as a candidate, after Mayor Michael Bloomberg's three-term, 12-year incumbency. There are seven declared Democratic candidates, three Republican candidates, one Independence candidate, and several more running on other party lines (as of the July 15 filing with the NYC Campaign Finance Board).

As the candidates criss-cross the city and participate in forums and debates, media organizations and others hope to understand who are the city's potential — and likely — voters and how the candidates may appeal to New York's rich and varied fabric of ethnic identities, local issues, and citywide policy concerns.

This website provides in one place a wealth of demographic information about selected ethnic groups and local neighborhoods across the city. It also provides a series of maps that reveal how several current mayoral candidates have fared in previous elections. This material provides historical and social context for the 2013 mayoral race. The information is designed primarily to help students at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and their partners at the Center for Community and Ethnic Media. But anyone interested in New York City politics should find the information helpful.
