In each county where the number of members of central committees to be elected is 12 or less, the members shall be elected in a countywide, at large district.

If the procedure outlined above would result in less members being elected in a county than the number to which the county is entitled under Section 7752, the calculation in subdivision (b) shall be repeated using a number of Peace and Freedom Party registered voters in the county sufficiently smaller than the actual number in the county so as to give a total number of members of central committees to be elected equal to or the nearest amount which is greater than the number to which the county is entitled.

(Enacted by Stats. 1994, Ch. 920, Sec. 2.)

7755.
