Prince George’s County, MD Proposes Addition of Two At-Large Council Seats
This November, voters will decide whether to approve the addition of two at-large seats on the County Council, increasing the number of council members from nine to 11.
The at-large seats would represent countywide seats instead of a specific district, which proponents argue will combat parochialism.
Neighboring high-population counties, including Montgomery County, frequently use at-large seats to better distribute resources throughout the county.
