Potential Candidates:

As the City of Atlanta Municipal Clerk/Election Superintendent, it is my goal to provide you with as much pertinent
information as possible regarding the City of Atlanta’s General Municipal Election.

The 2021 City of Atlanta Municipal General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at all
the regular precincts and polling places within the City of Atlanta.

The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

At that time, registered voters within the City of Atlanta who have registered by October 4, 2021, will vote to
fill the Offices of Mayor (1), City Council President (1), City Council Members (15), Board of
Education Members (9); and to retain Municipal Court Judges (10).

A Municipal General Run-off Election will be held on November 30, 2021, if the race for any seat results
in no single candidate receiving at least 50% plus one (1) vote. Should a Run-off be necessary, the two candidates
receiving the largest number of votes for an office will compete. The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00
p.m. at the regular precincts city-wide if, a Run-off Election is required to fill the seat of Mayor, Council President,
At-Large Council Member(s) or Board of Education Member(s); and/or at the precinct(s) within each Council or
Board of Education voting district of the City, that requires a Run-off Election.

Although the actual process of qualifying to become a candidate is simple enough, the entirety of matters related
to the election and your candidacy is multi-jurisdictional and may be a bit overwhelming. This brochure provides
comprehensive information for anyone seeking office and is compiled into a one-stop shop for the following office:

                 City of Atlanta Mayor
                 City of Atlanta Council President
                 City of Atlanta Districts and At-Large Council Members
                 City of Atlanta Board of Education Districts and At-Large Members

The entire staff of the Office of Municipal Clerk is dedicated to providing all interested persons with answers to
frequently asked questions that arise during the campaign period. If you have any questions regarding the City of
Atlanta General Municipal Election process, please feel free to visit the office in person at 55 Trinity Avenue, Suite
2700, email us at municipalclerk@atlantaga.gov or call our Election Hotline at (404) 330-6500.

Additional Information Pertaining to:

           As taken from the Charter of the Atlanta Independent School System
GAHB - Employees Seeking and Holding Political Offices
Employees of the Atlanta Board of Education are expected to exercise their rights of
franchise and assume the duties and responsibilities of good citizenship under the
American democratic way of life.
In the event an employee of the Board wishes to qualify or become a candidate for public
office, he/she may be granted a leave of absence without pay for the purpose of
campaigning for such office. However, a leave of absence is not mandatory, with the
proviso that the employee shall not engage in any political or campaign activity on his/her
own behalf or on behalf of any other candidate during regular working hours or on Board
time.
The Superintendent or his/her designee may administratively place an employee on
involuntary leave of absence if it is determined at any point during a campaign period that
the employee’s campaign effort interferes with the successful performance of his/her
assigned duties. The Superintendent’s action may be appealed by the employee to the
Board.
If the employee is elected to membership on the Board, he/she shall either retire or resign,
effective the day following installation in office. Continued employment with the Board
upon successful election to any other public office shall be governed by the capacity of the
employee to perform his/her job duties while holding public office and by the relationship
of the Board to the other governmental agency and the City Charter. Brief, occasional
absences may be accommodated through the Board’s regular personal leave policy.
Extended, prolonged, or regular absences prohibiting the successful completion of
assigned duties shall be cause administratively to arrange an extended leave of absence
for the employee in accordance with the Board’s leave policy.

   officer's last election or elective office after the payment of any expenses pursuant to
   subsection (a) of this Code section. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this

ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTIONS
O.C.G.A. 21-5-30(e)
      The making and acceptance of anonymous contributions are strictly prohibited.
     Any anonymous contributions received by a candidate or campaign committee
     shall be transmitted to the state treasurer for deposit in the state treasury, and the
     fact of such contribution and transmittal shall be reported to the commission.

           Anonymous contributions are prohibited

           Any cash contribution received by a candidate who fails to record the name
            and address of the contributor and the amount of the contribution is an
            anonymous contribution.

           If an anonymous contribution is received it must be transmitted to:
                   Office of Treasury and Fiscal Services
                   200 Piedmont Avenue

           The recipient must also notify the Commission of the receipt of the
            contribution and its subsequent transmittal to the office of Treasury and
            Fiscal Services. Disclosure of the anonymous contribution on a candidate
            campaign contribution report shall constitute notice to the Georgia
            Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission of
            compliance with O.C.G.A. 21-5-30(e)

USE OF CANDIDATES PERSONAL FUNDS

                     “MILLIONARES CLAUSE”
O.C.G.A. 21-5-41(h)
 Any candidate or campaign committee who incurs loans on or after January 9, 2006, in
connection with the candidate's campaign for election shall not repay, directly or
indirectly, such loans from any contributions made to such candidate or any authorized
committee of such candidate after the date of the election for which the loan was made
to the extent that such loans exceed $250,000.00.

              A candidate may use his own money or resources to finance a campaign or
               to supplement contributions received from others

              Such use of personal funds by a candidate is a campaign contribution; all
               such contributions must be reported.

              “Millionaires Clause” Millionaire’s Clause provides that a candidate who
               loans money to his campaign will not be able to use campaign funds to
               repay that loan after an election to the extent that the loan exceeds
               $250,000.00.

      Note: After election day, you can only repay up to $250,000.00 back from your
      campaign. Anything over this amount is forfeited.

MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE CONTRIBUTION LIMITS

The Campaign Finance Act, O.C.G.A. § 21-5-41(k), authorizes the Campaign
Finance Commission to raise or lower the maximum contributions limit set forth
in the Act by $100 increments based on inflation or deflation as determined by
the Consumer Price Index published by the United States Department of Labor.

On April 18, 2019, the Commission approved an increase in the maximum
contribution limits as follows:

       Two thousand eight hundred dollars ($2800.00) for a general
        election
       One thousand five hundred dollars ($1500.00) for a general
        run-off election.

No person, corporation, political committee, or political party shall make, and no
candidate or campaign committee shall receive from any such entity,
contributions to any candidate for municipal elected office which in the aggregate
for an election cycle exceed the amount listed above.

Note: the aggregate of monetary and in-kind contributions from the same
contributor must also not exceed the maximum contribution limits authorized by
the Act.
