City Maps

A number of small cities in Georgia are split into multiple districts when they could easily fit into a single district. While this is sometimes necessary to respect other redistricting requirements, this tactic could also be used to dilute the voting power of small-city residents and other voting groups across the state.

Two-thirds of small cities are cracked into multiple House districts. The number of small cities cracked into multiple districts increased by 44% in the 2011 decennial House redistricting.

The purpose of the city pages listed below is to provide relevant examples of small-to-medium size city cracking. We apologize if you don’t see your city listed below; we’ll add to the list as time and resources permit. Hope this is helpful!
