Washington, DC -- Voters in nearly one-third of the nation's cities with population over 30,000 will go to the polls tomorrow to elect their city's chief executive, the mayor. Results for mayoral elections in these 362 U.S. cities, when available, will be posted on the web site of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, www.usmayors.org.

In addition to New York City's high profile mayoral race, other large American cities voting for mayor on Tuesday include Houston, Detroit, Boston, Seattle, Charlotte, Cleveland, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Miami, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Toledo, and St. Paul. Click here for a full listing.

"Mayors are on the frontlines, confronting the challenges that matter to local voters," said New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, President of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. "These races are important to the cities involved and, taken together, demonstrate the strength of our democracy in these difficult times."

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are about 1,200 such cities in the country today. Each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
