The eight Democratic candidates running for mayor of New York City scrapped Thursday evening over numerous issues, but their focus was largely on policing and economic recovery.

It was the first debate before the June 22 primary in which the candidates could explain their visions to voters. Whoever wins that contest is likely to win in the Nov. 2 general election, given the city's large Democratic voter base.

However, turnout tends to be low in New York City primaries. About 700,000 New Yorkers voted in the 2013 primaries, which is about 20 percent of registered voters.

For the first time, the city will use ranked-choice voting in a primary, giving voters the option to select as many as five candidates in order of preference.
