Atlanta mayoral candidates Keisha Lance Bottoms (left) and Mary Norwood participate in a forum.



Due to Bottoms winning the race by a margin of less than 1 percent, Norwood her opponent who is a White Woman, immediately called for a recount of the vote once the results were announced, noting that absentee ballots from military members still had yet to be included in the final count. 






The provisional ballots will reportedly be counted and added to the final vote total on Thursday.





CONGRATULATIONS.
She will represent Atlanta well.
A True Georgia Peach.
