Ending Gerrymandering in Georgia
Congressional, state and local districts must be re-drawn every 10 years to reflect population changes – and how those district maps are drawn determines who has political power for the next decade. Gerrymandering undermines the right of Georgia voters to choose their representatives, which is why Common Cause Georgia is committed to pursuing redistricting reform and fighting for fair districts.
During this last redistricting cycle, Black voters in Georgia saw their voting power diminished. In response, Common Cause, the League of Women Voters of Georgia, and a group of Georgia voters filed a federal lawsuit (Common Cause v. Raffensperger) challenging Georgia’s congressional map.
