U.S. House map pulling part of Hall out of 9th Dist. wins final state legislative approval

The Georgia House Thursday gave final passage to a congressional redistricting map that pulls a thin slice of western Hall County out of the 9th District and moves it into the new 7th District along with Lumpkin County. A portion of South Hall would also move to the 7th.

Rich McCormick (R-Suwanee), who now represents the 6th District, is being reapportioned into the new 7th. Most of the 9th, represented by Andrew Clyde (R-Jackson County), remains intact under the plan and includes the remainder of Hall County.

(POSTED LAST FRIDAY) – The congressional reapportionment plan released Friday by Georgia legislative leaders has Republican 6th District Rep. Rich McCormick of Suwanee being drawn farther north into the north Georgia mountains from his base in suburban Atlanta.

McCormick’s district, which is now the 6th and includes all of Forsyth and Dawson County, portions of eastern Cobb, northern Fulton, a bit of western Gwinnett, and eastern Cherokee, would keep those counties, become the 7th and add Lumpkin County and a narrow strip of western Hall County.

The 9th District, represented by Andrew Clyde (R-Jackson County), would, in addition to Lumpkin and the part of Hall mentioned above, lose Hart and Franklin counties. (Click here to see a map of the redistricting proposal: congress-2023-packet.pdf (ga.gov) )
