Fulton County BRE Certified Recount of Returns for City of Atlanta General and Special Election | Print |

During its special called meeting on Saturday, November 18, 2017, the Fulton County Board of Registration & Elections (BRE) has certified the recount results for City of Atlanta City Council Post 1 At-Large election. The Board has certified the results are follows:


Michael J. Bond                               37,575

Courtney D. English                                   36,113

This was an election complicated by the fact that the position ran both in Fulton and DeKalb counties with two separate sets of results to compute.  It was further hampered by the limitation of the computation technology required to tabulate results. That technology compelled the inclusion of non-qualified write-in candidates, although election law required otherwise. Fulton County Registration & Elections was requested to recount this race and did so reviewing every vote, making sure that non-qualified write-in votes were not included.

These results will be added to those of DeKalb County to determine a final result.
