|Description||The Wisconsin State Assembly is the lower house of the Wisconsin |
Legislature. Together with the smaller Wisconsin Senate, the two
comprise the legislative branch of the U.S. state of Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Constitution limits the size of the State Assembly to
between 54 and 100 members inclusive.
Currently, Wisconsin is divided into 99 Assembly Districts apportioned
amongst the state based on population as determined by the decennial
census, for a total of 99 Representatives.
Representatives are elected for two year terms, elected during the fall
elections. If a vacancy occurs in an Assembly seat between elections,
it may be filled only by a special election.
The Assembly chamber is located in the west wing of the Wisconsin
State Capitol building, in Madison, Wisconsin.
Wisconsin legislators take office on the first Monday in January following a general election.
