WHY IS THERE A SPECIAL election?
A special election is an election scheduled at other-than-usual date for a specific purpose. It is often to fill an office that has become vacant before the incumbent has completed the term. In this case it’s to fill the remainder of the term (through 2021) left vacant by Byron Amos who ran for Atlanta City Council.
where is District 2?
Atlanta Public Schools’ District 2 consists of Atlanta City Council District 3 (Antonio Brown) and District 4 (Cleta Winslow).
