Congressional districts also known as electoral districts, legislative districts, ward, and electorates in other nations, are divisions of a larger administrative region that represent the population of a region in the larger congressional body. For example, in Australia electoral districts are referred to as ‘electorates’ or ‘seats’ and in Canada these are called ‘constituency’ or more informally ‘riding’ (reference). Countries with congressional districts include the United States, the Philippines, and Japan.
