Elections

2012

See also: Georgia House of Representatives elections, 2012

Elections for the office of Georgia House of Representatives were held in Georgia on November 6, 2012. All 180 seats were up for election.

The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in those elections was June 29, 2012.

This chamber was mentioned in a November 2012 Pew Center on the States article that addressed supermajorities at stake in the 2012 election. Supermajority generally means a party controls two-thirds of all seats. While it varies from state to state, being in this position gives a party much greater power. Going into the election, Republicans in the Georgia House held a solid majority and looked to obtain a supermajority.[7]

The following table details the 10 districts with the smallest margin of victory in the November 6 general election.
