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
