With a state growth of 20.1 percent assessed during the 2010 census, Georgia gets another seat in Congress and another vote in the Electoral College.
Reapportionment, also, means redistricting the General Assembly. Since the state population is now 9,687,653, just over 53,000 people will be in each of 180 State House districts, roughly 173,000 in each of 56 State Senate districts and almost 692,000 in the 14 congressional districts.
The reapportionment process is already well under way. The joint reapportionment committee of 22 representatives and 16 senators is holding 12 two-hour public hearings from 5 to 7 p.m. May 16th through June 30th, beginning on the eastern side of the state. The closest hearing for Fayette County will be held in Stockbridge, GA.
