This interactive map shows district lines for the Macon-Bibb County consolidated government. Zoom in on an area to find your home. Click on a district for candidate or winner names, demographic information about the district, as well as estimates by The Telegraph on how that district would've voted in the 2010 race for Georgia's governor. Color shades show the Democratic-Republican split. Grayed-out districts show races won Sept. 17.

This map has been updated to reflect candidates for the Oct. 15 runoff elections.

Runoff candidates for mayor are C. Jack Ellis and Robert A.B. Reichert.

Areas are shaded more blue for Democratic and more red for Republican. Grayed-out districts were won Sept. 17, but estimates of partisan leanings are available by clicking on the district.

The thick white lines mark the boundaries of the district map as passed by the entire Georgia General Assembly.

Census data comes from the 2010 Summary File 1 data files on a block-by-block level. This data is not estimated, but is as accurate as the actual 2010 Census.

Voting data was typed in for Bibb County precincts. Where a district line split an election precinct, the share of Democratic, Republican and Libertarian votes was split up according to that section's share of the voting-age population in the whole precinct. Because there's no way to know how individual people voted, this method attempts to compensate. The methodology assumes that one voting-age person in a voting precinct is as likely to vote, and are as likely to vote in a particular way, as another person in the same voting precinct. That is not a perfect assumption. These are estimates.
