Area Representation in North Carolina County Government


Author(s):
Abstract:
Area representation refers to the principle of elected officials representing the greatest extent of individual communities within a population. This had been state policy since 1905 but a Supreme Court ruling placed emphasis on distribution amongst populations rather than geographies. Changes to government representation forced the General Assembly to hold an extra session in January 1966 and their findings and conclusions are analyzed in this piece.
