Vermont Legislative Apportionment Board 2010
Under Chapter I, Article 7 and Chapter II, Sections 13, 18 and 73 of the Vermont Constitution, the Vermont General Assembly is periodically re-apportioned to reflect the state's changing demographic patterns. The current apportionment process is guided by Title 17, Sections 1901-1909 of the Vermont Statutes Annotated. In the Hartland case (1993), the Supreme Court elaborated on district criteria. The Apportionment Board drafts the initial apportionment plan. The General Assembly, drawing from this plan, enacts the apportionment system for the ensuing decade. The Office of the Secretary of State serves as secretariat to the Board.
