In 2011, the Georgia State Legislature re-drew the congressional districts based on updated population information from the 2010 census.

On August 22, 2011, Georgia's Republican leadership released their proposed Congressional redistricting map. Due to population growth, Georgia gained a 14th Congressional district following the 2010 census. The new district, according to the plan, is located in the northwestern part of the state.[7] Rep. Tom Graves (R) was drawn into the new district, which left 9th District seat open in 2012. After redistricting, the 9th District leaned Republican.[7] In addition, the plan displaced Rep. John Barrow (D), but Barrow (who had been displaced before) moved into the district in order to remain in the 12th District.[7] Rep. Sanford Bishop's (D) district will become a majority-minority district. Also, Rep. Phil Gingrey's (R) 11th District picked up part of Atlanta. Overall, the plan was expected to bolster the Republican majority in the state's congressional delegation.[7]
