What To Know Now: Election Day

Today is election day across the United States, and the city of Atlanta is holding a general election for mayor, city council president, three at-large council members, 12 by-district council members, and 10 city judges. Twelve candidates are in the running to succeed Mayor Kasim Reed, who served two terms in the city that has been helmed by African-American leadership in its top office for 40 years.

If you didn’t cast your vote early, the polls across Fulton County will be open until 8 p.m. And you’re still researching the candidates, we’ve got you covered with ADW’s Exclusive Mayoral Questionnaire.
