This Act reapportions the General Assembly into 21 Senate Districts and 41 House Districts. This legislation would also allow the Board of Elections in Kent, New Castle or Sussex County to approve proposed election district lines for the 2002 Primary and General Election even if a vacancy occurs on the board at that time as long as a majority of the board members agree.
