ATLANTA (CBS46) — Nov. 2 was Election Day in the state of Georgia. Voters headed to the polls to vote on a number of municipal races that will affect their home towns.

The biggest race on the ballot was in the city of Atlanta. Voters are electing a new mayor, as current mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is not seeking another term. There were14 candidates on the ballot, with five candidates who have separated themselves in polling over the last few months. 

With 41 percent of the vote, City Council President Felicia Moore will head to a runoff on Nov. 30. In a bit of a shocker, former Mayor Kasim Reed apparently will not be her opponent in that runoff.

Early Wednesday morning, once all precincts in Fulton and DeKalb counties had reported their unofficial results, it appeared City Councilmember Andre Dickens pulled ahead by roughly 600 votes. Provisional ballots are still being counted and the election results will be certified Monday.

As of 12 p.m. Wednesday, Reed had not conceded. 

"We just keep moving, we are moving, getting on the ground making sure that volunteers are ready to go, energizing our supporters, fundraisers," Moore told CBS46 Wednesday. "Everything we’ve done before we’re going to double it down.”

Dickens, who is preparing to face Moore in the runoff, said Wednesday, "I’m talking to my former opponents and asking them how can we work together and also build some coalition to be able to get their supporters to support me.”
