ATLANTA—Today, the General Assembly approved redrawn state legislative maps in response to a federal court order finding that Georgia’s enacted state legislative and congressional district maps diluted the voting strength of Black voters and violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The maps now go to the Governor’s desk for signing.

The ACLU of Georgia issues the follows statement in response to the redrawn maps:

“We are reviewing the state legislative maps that were passed and are disappointed that the General Assembly chose to not fully comply with Judge Jones’ order. We plan to address this non-compliance in court.”
