Taking a Stand for preceding events. Prior tothe districts used to elect members of congress and state legislatures varied widely in population.
Like other southern states, Georgia had many thinly populated rural districts that politically dominated the few heavily-populated urban districts. Ina series of Supreme Court reapportionment cases most notably Wesberry v.
Sanders and Reynolds v. Sims require that electoral voting districts have roughly equal populations. Inthese "One Person, One Vote" rulings force Georgia to create a number of new state assembly districts, several of which are in Atlanta.
A special election is scheduled for June 15,to fill these new seats for the session of the legislative term. And to use the campaign as an experiment in issue-oriented, community organizing in an urban environment as opposed to the rural areas where most SNCC work is focused.
