XI.08 [Effective until 1/1/2021] Determination of number of House of Representatives districts within each county

A county having at least one House of Representatives ratio of representation shall have as many House of Representatives districts wholly within the boundaries of the county as it has whole ratios of representation. Any fraction of the population in excess of a whole ratio shall be a part of only one adjoining House of Representatives district.

The number of whole ratios of representation for a county shall be determined by dividing the population of the county by the ratio of representation for the House of Representatives determined under section 2 of this Article.

(As enacted Nov. 7, 1967. Former § 8 repealed, see SJR 24, 107th General Assembly.)
