Subject: seats per electoral/dail boundry.
Short and sweet.
Why do we not have 6/7/8/9 seater constituencies.
As far as i know this is allowed.
We used to have such constituencies. Just add an extra seat or 2 if applicable to the existing seats
in a constituency..
1.would save having to constantly change boundaries.
2. would eliminate gerrymanders/tullymanders.
3.might be a little slower in getting results.
4. might cost a little more for counters .( STAFF ).
5, might give a better representation with changing demographics/citizens.
You would make a name for your commission
