92nd Delaware General Assembly

The 92nd Delaware General Assembly was a meeting of the legislative branch of the state government, consisting of the Delaware Senate and the Delaware House of Representatives. Elections were held the first Tuesday after November 1st and terms began in Dover on the first Tuesday in January. This date was January 6, 1903, which was two weeks before the beginning of the third administrative year of Governor John Hunn and Philip Cannon as Lieutenant Governor.

Contents

The distribution of the Senate seats was seven senators for New Castle County and five senators each for Kent and Sussex counties. Likewise the distribution of the Assembly seats was fifteen representatives for New Castle County and ten representatives each for Kent and Sussex counties. The actual population changes of the county did not directly affect the number of senators or representatives at this time.

In the 92nd Delaware General Assembly both chambers had a Republican majority.

Senate

About half of the State Senators were elected every two years for a four-year term. They were from a district in a specific county, with the number of districts determined by the state constitution, not the size of the population.

House of Representative

All the State Representatives were elected every two years for a two-year term. They were from a district in a specific county, with the number of districts determined by the state constitution, not the size of the population.
