1. We first address the ruling of the court that Mr. Radcliff was not a qualified candidate for city office because he was a resident of DeKalb County, outside the city limits of Atlanta, from September 1, 1983, until September 17, 1985. Chapter 2, Sec. 2-202 of the Charter of the City of Atlanta requires that a candidate be a resident of the city for at least two years immediately preceding his notice of candidacy. When a court tries the facts without a jury, the evidence will be construed on appeal to uphold the judgment. Barry v. Stanco Communications Products, 243 Ga. 68 (252 SE2d 491) (1979)
. We hold that the judgment finding Mr. Radcliff not a qualified candidate is supported by the evidence and must be affirmed.
2. Mr. Radcliff was not a resident of the City of Atlanta at the time he filed his challenge to Mr. Arrington's qualifications; therefore, he was not a qualified "elector" as required by OCGA 21-3-3
which defines the procedures for challenging qualifications of a candidate for municipal office. Reviewing the entire record before this court, we hold the trial court was correct in denying Mr. Radcliff's challenge.
