Carl Wimmer knows, whats up with that?

Wouldn't it be nice if they "lined up" with actually representing the people instead of themselves?

I just learned that a Congressperson isn't actually required to live in the district he "represents." Jason Chafetz doesn't live in "his" district.

If that is the case, why can I vote for only one representative. Shouldn't all Utah citizens be able to vote for all our representatives?

I've read and re-read the Constitution and haven't found an answer there. Where did the current practice originate. Can it be changed?

Does anyone out there have an answer?
