1. Green, Willie, III. The Impact of City-County Consolidation upon Political Participation within Rural Georgia.

Degree: PhD, Political Science, 2016, Clark University Atlanta

Previous studies of urban consolidations suggest that black and female political participation is negatively impacted by city-county consolidation. However, researchers know little regarding the impact of consolidation upon minority political participation within rural counties. This study examines the belief that blacks and women are negatively impacted by consolidation. This study examines pre- and post-consolidated data for selected forms of political participation for blacks and women over a 19-year period for three rural consolidated governments in the state of Georgia. Three significant findings emerged from this study. First, the results suggest that black political participation actually increases within rural consolidated governments. Secondly, female political participation does seem to be adversely impacted by rural consolidations. Lastly, this study found that the political participation of the general electorate had increased over the study period. A number of possible explanations for the findings are noted and the implications of consolidation for black and female political participation within rural consolidated counties are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: William H. Bone, Ph.D., Hashim T. Gibrill, Ph.D., F. S. J. Ledgister, Ph.D..
