In Georgia, both congressional and state legislative district lines are drawn by the state legislature.

A simple majority in each chamber is required to approve redistricting plans, which are subject to veto by the governor.

Republicans made steady gains after 1988 and eventually won the necessary seats to claim a majority in the chamber.

From 1992 to 2002, Republicans made gains on Democrats in almost every election (with the exception of 2002, which was the year Georgia elected its first Republican governor in over a century).

Seven states have only one congressional district each, rendering congressional redistricting unnecessary.

Four states employ independent commissions to draw the district maps.

In 2004, Republicans won 94 seats, giving them a slim majority in the chamber.

They continued to win seats in 2006 despite it being a national Democratic wave election, and they only lost one seat in 2008, another Democratic wave.

The table below shows the partisan history of the Georgia House of Representatives following every general election from 1992 to 2016.
