This is a list of mayors of Atlanta in the state of Georgia in the United States. The term of office was one year until Cicero C. Hammock's second term (1875–77), when a new city charter changed it to two years. The term was changed to four years in 1929, giving Ragsdale the modern stay in office. Though a political party is listed where known, the mayoral election is officially non-partisan, so the candidate did not represent their party when elected. In recent history, the viable candidates in the race have primarily been Democrats. Wikipedia
