Decatur, GA — Decatur and Atlanta erupted in celebration after cable news networks and the Associated Press announced on Nov. 7 that Joe Biden had defeated Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election.

It’s also likely Biden will flip the state of Georgia, though a recount is likely.

Decaturish contributors are out taking photos of today’s events and interviewing residents. Here’s what we have so far.
