Former Atlanta mayoral candidate Mary Norwood’s attempt to get on the ballot to challenge John Eaves for the chairmanship of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners has ended.The Fulton elections board voted against Norwood’s gaining ballot access because she missed the filing deadline by more than four hours.

She had until noon last Friday to file an official notice of candidacy, but officials say she filed at 4:40 p.m.

Norwood nearly beat Kasim Reed, losing the mayoral race by 714 votes.
