How many seats each state gets in the US House of representatives in the United States is not determined by how many voters, register, vote or do not vote. It has never been determined by that. Every 10 years a census is taken of each and every person in the United States, Mail is sent out, people who are hired knock at your door and ask how many adults and children are in your household.
These are a sample of questions that are asked:
Through the decades, the census has collected data on number of citizens in each household, race, ancestry, education, health, housing, and transportation. An examination of the questions asked during each census illustrates changes in our nation’s understanding of race, the impact of immigration, growth of the Hispanic population, and computer usage And determines the total population, growth or descrease. .Dec 11, 2017
Under Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, seats in the House of Representatives are apportioned among the states by population, as determined by the census conducted every ten years. Each state is entitled to at least one Representative, however small its population.
This in turn will change the number of representatives for each state due to growth, relocation, or decreases in births and those growing to majority.
VOTING does not and has not EVER determined how many representatives each state has. POPULATION for each state and each district does.
its interesting howthe politics is the US work. As I stated in the previous question, we also have a census which is sent out to every household and that is strictly to collect data on the population. It’s the same here. We have to fill out a survey of questions which include names, how many individuals live on the property, rough incomes and job types. If the house is owned outright, Mortgaged, or is it a rental. Those are some of the questions.
Now when it comes to voting in a New Prime Minister or a party for the state it is compulsory to vote. If we do not vote we receive a fine which has to be paid.
Now how does a new president in the US get voted in? Do the representatives in Congress place a vote on their preferred candidate? That’s where I get confused.
In Aus we the people vote for the political party we want to lead us for the next four years until the next election is held. The difference is that we have a prime minister who is the spokes person for that party.
Have a great day anon.😊🙏❤️👍
