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.
