List of electoral districts in the crown land of Salzburg

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list of electoral districts in Salzburg lists all electoral districts in the crown land of Salzburg for the elections of the Austrian House of Representatives . The constituencies existed between 1907 and 1918.


After the Reichsrat had decided on the general, equal, secret and direct male suffrage in autumn 1906, the major reform of the electoral law through the sanctioning of Emperor Franz Joseph I came into effect on January 26, 1907 . With the new Reichsrat election regulations, a total of 480 electoral districts were created, each with one member to be elected, who was determined by direct election with a possible runoff. In Salzburg there were six constituencies before the abolition of the class electoral law, with the rural communities and the cities (together with the Salzburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry) each sending two delegates and the large landowners and the general electoral class each sending one delegate. With the introduction of universal male suffrage, seven electoral districts were created in Salzburg, which were divided into three so-called city constituencies and four rural community constituencies. In addition to the two city constituencies for Salzburg and its immediate surroundings, there was another city constituency in which the eligible voters of a number of cities and markets, but also individual localities from a municipality were combined. The rural community constituencies consisted of a certain number of judicial districts, from which the places from the city constituencies were again excluded.
