Voters to cast ballots today for Atlanta mayor

ATLANTA — Voters in Atlanta will be deciding whether to re-elect Mayor Kasim Reed.

Reed is facing three lesser-known challengers in today's nonpartisan election. They are mediator Al Bartell, financial planner Fraser Duke and consultant Glenn Wrightson.

A former state lawmaker, Reed is known for his strong support of President Barack Obama and his working relationship with Republican Gov. Nathan Deal on issues such as economic development and transportation.

Reed hasn't been been immune to criticism. Open government advocates have challenged Reed over a plan to use public financing to help support a new Atlanta Falcons stadium, and a group of street vendors have expressed their unhappiness since the city took steps to curtail the selling of goods on public streets.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
