Introducing a New Question on Georgia Ballots: Should the counties south of Macon join together to form the 51st state of South Georgia?
Over 27% of GOP Voted YES. Considering the population decrease of Pierce County and the frustration and struggle of South Georgia’s economy, the realization is beginning to hit that South Georgia has been put on the back-burner for quite some time. Officials are trying to get the question on every single ballot and aim to help the rural counties to rise in the meantime.
The Capital would be Savannah and the counties would be redrawn smaller and carry more weight. Although we are already seeing a division for Georgia, most lawmakers are quick to say this plan will be unsuccessful, followed by, “But it might, you never know.”
How this idea would affect housing and real estate in both regions of the state has not been forecast.
