Map S.2.6     Landtag Elections in Saxony (legend), 1869–1895/96

 

 

 

Note: This legend applies to all maps in this Online Supplement depicting elections to the Saxon Landtag from 1869 to 1895. Scale in the legend applies only to the published maps. In 1869 all 80 mandates in the Saxon Landtag were contested, on the basis of constituency boundaries legislated with the Saxon Landtag suffrage reform of 1868. Thereafter, one-third of mandates were contested every two years, according to the rhythm shown in the legend. A suffrage reform in 1896 fundamentally changed the basis on which votes were cast and counted, although the geographical borders of Landtag constituencies did not change until another suffrage reform followed in 1909.
