The Burlington city council is proposing changes to the political layout of Vermont's largest municipality, and on town meeting day we'll be voting whether or not to adopt them. These changes are meant to fix imbalances in the principal of "One person, one vote" that currently leave the city vulnerable to Federal representation lawsuit.
Under the proposed plan, the city will be structured into 8 wards (about 5,000 people each) and 4 districts (about 10,000 people - each district contains 2 wards). Each voter will select one ward councilor and one district councilor, and the new council will have a total of 12 members.
