At 2:01 a.m., the votes in Fulton County were counted.
Vote tallies were delayed as the county waited for voting cards to come in from three precincts that were kept open past 7 p.m. following a court order, Jessica Corbitt, a county spokesperson, said.

The Pittman Park Recreation Center closed at 9 p.m., while the Booker T. Washington High School and Archer Hall at Morehouse College precincts both closed at 10 p.m. Corbitt said people were voting until 11:30 p.m.
Just shy of 2 a.m., the county reported 83 percent of votes had been counted. Fulton has a history of not finishing its counting until well into the night.
In total, 421,490 votes were cast, a 60 percent voter turnout. Fulton’s totals include absentee ballots, though some other counties have yet to tally theirs. A number of races remain too close to call.
