There will be a recount in an Atlanta City Council race.

Fulton and DeKalb County elections officials announced Wednesday that they will conduct a recount Friday morning for Council Post 1.

That’s an at-large post.

The Election Day count had Courtney English at 40,714 votes and incumbent Michael Julian Bond at 41,079 votes, a difference of 375 votes.
