Georgia to Convene Special Session for Voting Maps
Gov. Brian Kemp called for a special legislative session to begin November 29 due to the recent striking down of Georgia’s legislative and congressional voting maps by a federal judge.
The judge stated the maps violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and has set a deadline of December 8 for state lawmakers to draw new ones.
The maps will be redrawn to include multiple black-majority districts including two new districts for the Senate and five for the House.
