Georgia will have slightly different legislative maps for the 2024 election cycle. Why? It all started when a group of civil rights and religious organizations challenged the existing or 2021 maps. They argued that Black residents fueled Georgia's population growth in the decade before the 2020 census. But that reality did not translate into adequate political representation in Atlanta or Washington, D.C. In October 2023, U.S. District Judge Steve Jones stated that the state's 2021 maps needed to be redrawn. Judge Jones claimed the 2021 maps, illegally diluted Black voters. State legislators were then tasked with redrawing the maps to create several new majority-Black voting districts. That task was completed and in December 2023 and Judge Jones approved the redrawn maps. Several changes to state house and senate districts were made in the Northeast Georgia region. Fayette County did not have any changes in state senate or house districts.
Georgia's congressional map experienced the largest adjustment. The new map, is likely to retain Georgia's 9-5 Republican majority for its 14 congressional seats.
On the new map, Fayette County’s District 13 boundary lines did not change but is now District 6. Fayette's District 3 remained unchanged.
Current U.S. District 6 Republican Representative Rich McCormick, stated that he will now run in the new 7th district. Democrat Lucy McBath, who currently represents District 7, said she will run for her next term, in District 6.
