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. Partisan gerrymandering undermines the right of Georgia voters to choose their representatives and increases political polarization under the Gold Dome, which is why Common Cause Georgia is committed to pursuing redistricting reform ahead of the 2020 Census.
In 2017, CCGA was a part of a coalition of organizations who beat back a bill that would racially gerrymander two state House districts. In 2018, CCGA is leading the fight to ensure protections are adopted into our state law that would prevent legislators from drawing voting districts in any way that would reduce the power of “one person, one vote.”
