The field includes a few familiar faces.
Carey lost in a December 2017 runoff election to Amos.
The nine candidates qualified to place their names on the ballot during the qualifying period last week. District 2 includes Douglass and Booker T. Washington high schools.
Atlanta Public Schools will pay up to $550,000 to hold the special election, according to an April estimate.
Whoever wins the spot could prove to be a crucial swing vote on the nine-member board. There's been at least one 4-4 tie vote since Amos' departure. When a vote results in a tie, the action under consideration is defeated.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
