    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?

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