Simultaneous at-large and sub-state-size congressional districtsThis is a table of every such instance. It shows the situation applied to a small, varying group of states in three periods. The 33rd Congress began in 1853; it ended two years later. The 38th began in 1863; the 50th ended in 1889. The 53rd began in 1893; the 89th ended in January, 1967, the final such period. This was due to the 1964 case of ''[[Reynolds v. Sims'': the [[United States Supreme Court determined that the general basis of apportionment must be "[[one person, one vote."
Local electionsSince passage of the [[Voting Rights Act of 1965 and lessening of some historic barriers to voter registration and voting, legal challenges have been made based on at-large election schemes at the county or city level, including in school board elections, in numerous jurisdictions where minorities had been effectively excluded from representation on local councils or boards. An example is [[Charleston County, South Carolina, which was sued in 2001 and reached a settlement in 2004. Its county commission changed to nine members elected from single-member districts; in 2015 they included six white Republicans and three African-American Democrats, where the black minority makes up more than one-third of the population. In another instance, in 2013 [[Fayette County, Georgia, which had an estimated 70% white majority and 20% black minority, was ordered by a federal district court to develop [[single-member districts for election of members to its county council and its school board. Due to at-large voting, African Americans had been unable to elect any candidate of their choice to either of these boards for decades.ABS Staff, "Fayette County at-large election process violates the Voting Rights Act"
