1 Title:   Earl P. Cook Collection of County Unit System Materials  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Cook, Earl Pope  
  Dates:   1946  
  Contents:  
In 1946, the Georgia Veterans for Majority Rule group brought forth two lawsuits against the Georgia Democratic Executive Committee in objection to the county unit system. The Georgia Veterans for Majority Rule found the county unit system unconstitutional which gave an overwhelming advantage for candidates to win votes in rural counties despite the fact that the population of rural Georgia only comprised approximately one-third of the state's population. Earl Pope Cook was a Troup County native and Army Signal Corps veteran who testified as a plaintiff in one of the two test suits against the Georgia State Democratic Executive Committee and the Secretary of State, Ben W. Fortson.
