An election for Mayor of New York City was held on November 7, 2017. Incumbent Democrat Bill de Blasio won reelection to a second term with 66.5% of the vote against Republican Nicole Malliotakis.

Background[edit]

Bill de Blasio was elected Mayor of New York City in 2013, with his term beginning January 1, 2014. De Blasio declared his intention to seek reelection to Democratic nomination again in April 2015.[1]

As per Jerry Skurnik's[2] blog,[3] the following candidates have filed their petitions to have their names on the ballot during the primary elections: Democrats Bill De Blasio, Sal Albanese, Robert Gangi, Richard Bashner and Michael Tolkin and Republicans Nicole Malliotakis, Rocky De La Fuente and Walter Iwachiw.

On May 9, 2017, the Libertarian Party nominated Aaron Commey as its mayoral candidate.[4] This is Commey's first run for political office.[4] On August 1, 2017, the City Board of Elections determined in a hearing that Rocky De La Fuente did not receive enough petition signatures to qualify for the primary Republican ballot in September.[5] With the disqualification of Rocky De La Fuente on the primary ballot and the remaining Republican candidate, Walter Iwachiw, not reporting any fundraising for this election,[6][7] Nicole Malliotakis was the only remaining candidate for the Republican nomination.

There were two Democratic primary debates to determine who would be the Democratic nominee for NYC Mayor. The candidates were incumbent Mayor, Bill De Blasio and former NYC Council Member, Sal Albanese. Both candidates had democratic primaries on August 23rd[8] and on September 6th.[9]

The first general election debate was held on October 10th featuring Democratic nominee and incumbent NYC Mayor, Bill De Blasio, Republican challenger, Nicole Malliotakis, and Independent candidate, Bo Dietl.[10] The second general election debate was held on November 1st.[11]

Major third parties[edit]

Besides the Democratic and Republican parties, the Conservative, Green, Working Families, Independence, Reform, and Women's Equality parties are qualified New York parties. These parties have automatic ballot access.

For this election, once Paul Massey dropped out of NYC Mayoral race,[79] the Independence Party failed to submit another entry for the election day ballot. [80] There was no independence party line in this general election. Any candidate not among the eight qualified New York parties must petition their way onto the ballot; they do not face primary elections.

Albanese was nominated by the Reform Party Committee. On September 12, 2017, an Opportunity to Ballot was held to see if Albanese would retain the party's nomination. Bo Dietl, running as an independent, and Nicole Malliotakis, the Republican nominee, each attempted to the secure the party line. Albanese won the race by receiving approximately 57 percent of the vote, defeating the write in campaigns.[81]
