Georgia's 10th congressional district is a congressional district in the U.S. state of Georgia. The district is currently represented by Republican Paul Broun, and includes a large swath of exurban and rural territory between Atlanta and Augusta.

The district's boundaries have been redrawn following the 2010 census, which granted an additional congressional seat to Georgia.[3] The first election using the new district boundaries (listed below) were the 2012 congressional elections.

Located in the eastern part of the state, the new district boundaries include the cities of Athens, Eatonton, Jackson, Milledgeville, Monroe, Watkinsville, and Winder. [4]
