NEW YORK - Public Advocate Bill de Blasio won the most votes in the New York City Democratic mayoral primary on Tuesday, according to exit polls reported by local media.

The results did not show whether de Blasio had secured the 40 percent needed to avert an Oct. 1 runoff with the second-place candidate in the race, according to exit polls cited by The New York Times and NY1 television.

The candidates were vying to succeed three-term Mayor Michael Bloomberg in running the most populous city in the United States.

De Blasio was leading with 42 percent over former city comptroller Bill Thompson with 26 percent and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn with 18 percent, according to exit polls cited by NY1 television within an hour of the polls closing at 9 p.m. EDT.
