Voting Rights, Ecological Inference


The primary goal of this paper is to analyze the current congressional districts in Georgia by relying on the 2022 midterm elections to perform racially polarized voting analysis. Using ecological inference techniques and procedures, this study aims to provide insight into the details of active voting rights litigation. Ultimately, this project is questioning whether the districts in Georgia agree with the terms of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, meaning they do not demonstrate significant evidence of inhibiting a minority group racial group’s right to vote. This paper provides insight into the efficacy and equitability of congressional districts in Georgia. Focusing on Congressional races in the Atlanta area, as well as statewide races, the project concludes that, while further research may be necessary, there is likely vote dilution in Georgia.
