Plural district

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A plural district was a district in the United States House of Representatives that was represented by more than one member. States using this method elected multiple members from some of their geographically defined districts, either on a single ballot (block voting) or on separate concurrent ballots for each seat (conducting multiple plurality elections).

This method was used to give more populous counties additional representation without dividing them into multiple districts - voters were instead allowed to either vote in several elections or to vote for a slate of candidates. It was a system used mostly in Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania until prohibited by the 1842 Apportionment Bill and subsequent legislation.
