They'll be fine for a day. Just make sure they're totally submerged, or the exposed parts will discolor.

As long as the potato isn't exposed to air, it will not oxidize.

We kept peeled potatoes in a bucket of water in the cooler of the restaurant i used to work at for about a week...so theyll be totally fine!
