Atlanta 2017 Election

The December 5th Runoff

The next mayor of Atlanta will be decided in a runoff election on December 5, 2017. The candidates are Keisha Lance-Bottoms and Mary Norwood. A few other local races will be decided in that vote as well. We’ll post more about it later. For now, visit the Vote ATL site for info about the runoff.

Mayoral Candidate Grades & Select Council Endorsements for the November 2017 Vote

ThreadATL’s candidate grades and city council endorsements are based on the following research: attendance at forums, personal conversations with candidates and their staffers, one-on-one interviews with candidates that we publicly hosted, and input from the local urbanist community through online surveys and in-person events.
