An Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Is Calling For A Recount - Again

On Tuesday night, Atlanta mayoral candidate Keisha Lance Bottoms declared a victory — but her opponent, Mary Norwood, isn't backing down yet.

Unofficial results from the race show that Bottoms beat Norwood by 759 votes, but Norwood says she's waiting for absentee and provisional ballots to be tabulated on Thursday. The independent candidate is also calling for a recount.

Following the election returns, Norwood said: "We just don't know. This is very close. It is not over yet."

This mayoral election is eerily similar to the one in 2009. Norwood lost by 714 votes to former Mayor Kasim Reed. She also requested a recount then, and the results of that changed the outcome by just one vote.

Still, Norwood has repeatedly said that loss was partly due to voter fraud.
