The Atlanta Mayoral run-off election between Democratic City Councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms, a Democrat, and Independent Councilwoman Mary Norwood may be headed to a recount. With all precincts reporting, Ms. Bottoms holds only 759 vote lead from more than 92,000 ballots cast. It is unclear at this point just how many absentee and provisional ballots remain to be counted. Mayor Kasim Reed was ineligible to seek a third term. The final declaration of this vote elects the new Atlanta Mayor.
