In the past, Texas employed multimember districts in some areas. What is the impact of multimember districts?

a. Minority voters are underrepresented.
b. Minority voters are overrepresented. c. Democrats have an advantage.
d. Republicans have a disadvantage.

I think minority was over represented..

  • Texas Government -

    No, minority interest were quashed.

    In Austin, in at large districts were in terrible shape...the voters in East Austin (heavily black) were outvoted by whites in other districts, and as a result, never got representation on the city council.

  • Texas Government -

    So it would be A..

    Of course, multimember district means two or more representatives.. hence the whites were more in majority resulting in low minority voters.
