The City of Atlanta is home to half a million people, but its next mayor, City Council president and other local leaders will be chosen only by the voters who show up to the November runoff.

About 97,000 Atlantans cast a vote for mayor in the first round of voting, which ended Nov. 2. That means less than one in four Atlanta voters showed up.

This time, Atlantans have 10 runoffs to decide who will get seats at City Hall and on the city Board of Education.

A total 2,111 Atlantans had requested mail or electronic ballots as of Nov. 24. However, Nov. 19 was the last day to submit an absentee mail ballot application.

Numbers in this story will be updated through Nov. 24.
