  • Governor Deal being interviewed after his big victory last night



The battles to become Georgia’s next governor and U.S. Senator were expected to be close — and even head into two runoffs. But few people predicted that a Republican blowout down the entire ticket would happen.

But instead, GOP candidates swept the entire statewide ticket. U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue, Gov....

Earlier today, you did your duty as a citizen and cast a ballot in the municipal elections. After that you slaved away at the office. You deserve a night filled with cash bars, stale peanuts, and political insiders.

Across the city, candidates for the Atlanta mayor's office, Atlanta City Council, and Atlanta Public Schools board will gather with supporters and keep an eye on...

Journos and political observers are still wrapping their heads around last night's primary elections, which saw the failure of the regional transportation tax in metro Atlanta (but not everywhere in Georgia) and several pink slips being handed to incumbents. Here's a brief rundown of what we're noticing as the dust settles.

  • Yes, metro Atlanta's T-SPLOST failed in a spectacular fashion. But...

We almost made it through this important election day without a hiccup. Almost.

A good-ole-fashioned debacle occurred in southeast Atlanta, where Fulton County election officials say a database error affected approximately 300 registered voters' ballots for state House District 58 and 59. Officials said no other races were affected by the glitch and that they plan to regroup tomorrow to see...

OK, so where do we start?

  • With nearly all votes counted, it appears that an extension of a 1-cent sales tax to pay for Atlanta and Fulton County schools' capital programs — or E-SPLOST — has passed 64-36. (Any thoughts on how that might affect next year's sewer and T-SPLOST referenda?)

  • Ditto the E-SPLOST in Decatur and DeKalb County. According to unofficial results reported by...

Ah, election night parties. The free, open-to-the-public swank soirees where people can drop mad bills on cash bars and act like fools in close proximity to elected officials and TV cameras. They're a sight to behold.

Most candidates this year are pooling resources and holding several parties in one place. Here's a quick list. (We're sure these aren't the only...
