Gov. Brian Kemp signed House Bill 890 which changes the commission districts in Athens-Clarke County, effectively reapportioning voter precincts for the upcoming year.
Commissioners Melissa Link, Tim Denson and Russell Edwards currently represent these three districts, respectively.
According to the new map, these commissioners are removed from their current districts.
Right now, there are no immediate changes until the election process on May 24, 2022. The map does not go into effect until Jan. 1, 2023.
