What is the minority party representation law?

Under Conn. Gen. Stat. § 146-9 (Rev. 2016) , any board that is not the legislative body or elected via geographical divisions, must adhere to minority party representation rules. This means that no Board, like the Stamford Board of Education, can have a single party control all seats. The law provides for how many seats the majority party can have based on the number of seats available (approximately 2/3).For example, the Stamford Board of Education consists of 9 members elected at-large from the city. According to the table above, only 6 seats can be held by one party.
