Norwood also never surrendered her second place position.

Former Atlanta city councilperson Cathy Woolard carried DeKalb County handily, but that wasn't enough for her to overcome an apparent third-place finish.

Polls closed in the city of Atlanta and Fulton County at 8 p.m., with results coming in later than in other elections where polls traditionally closed at 7 p.m.

Both candidates were on 11Alive's Morning Rush and spoke to Shiba Russell about what's next.
