Live Results: Atlanta Mayoral Runoff, Massachusetts House Special Election

Atlanta Mayor

Rank Population Mayor Term Status
38 498,715 Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) 1 Did not run

No candidate received a majority of the vote in the November 3 election, necessitating Tuesday's top two runoff. As expected, City Council President Felicia Moore finished first. She received 41% of the votes across the 14-person field. 

In a bit of a surprise, City Councilman Andre Dickens edged out former two-term mayor Kasim Reed by 600 votes to claim the second spot. Dickens received 23% of the overall vote. Dickens has been endorsed by outgoing mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

The runoff looks competitive. There have been two polls, which offset each other. A University of Georgia survey showed Dickens with a six-point lead over Moore, while a SurveyUSA poll found just the opposite. Both polls had a significant number of undecided voters.

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

Massachusetts State House 4th Essex

There are 160 districts in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. The chamber is dominated by Democrats, who hold 129 seats. There are 29 Republicans and 1 independent. The next regularly scheduled election is in 2022.

This coastal district is located in the northeast part of the state. Republican Bradford Hill resigned in September after being appointed to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. He had been in office since 1999, and had run unopposed over the last decade, except in 2018. That year, Hill defeated Democrat Allison Gustavson by 56% to 44%. 

Primaries for this election were held on November 3. Both featured two candidates. Jamie Belsito won the Democratic nomination with 74% of the vote. The Republican nominee is Robert Snow, who received 57% support. 

Polls close at 8:00 PM Eastern Time.
