ELECTION DISTRICTS (1993, 2016)
- A mix of single and multi-member districts. The following criteria should be used to decide which districts should be single and which should be multi-member:
- a. full minority representation;
- b. geographic integrity;
- c. preservation of political and community boundaries;
- d. compactness
- Coterminous boundaries (Delegate districts nesting within Senate districts).
Background: Consensus was reached in 1993 to support a mix of single and multiple member districts with Delegates "nesting" within a single Senate district. A 2016 review of the position reconfirmed the consensus.
