On Tuesday night, Atlanta elected Keisha Lance Bottoms as its new mayor, but her opponent, Mary Norwood, wants a recount.

Both women are Atlanta City Council members.

While the Bottoms camp has claimed victory in the race, the Associated Press has deemed the race "too close to call", and the Norwood campaign has told supporters she is requesting a recount - much as she did in 2009 when she also came in short. But with initial results showing a margin of just a few hundred votes, her rival asked for a recount.

Bottoms a Democrat, secured the mayoral seat in a tight race against Mary Norwood, an Independent and fellow member of the city council.
