Heavy Lifting ahead of its time again

FairVote has a discussion concerning the appointment of replacement Senators vs. the election of replacement Representatives.

The key stats:

Number of U.S. Senators appointed without election since the ratification of 17th Amendment: 182
Number of U.S. House members ever to serve without election: 0

Number of states that always fill U.S. Senate vacancies by election: 4
Number of states that always fill U.S. House vacancies by election: 50


Here's the full list of appointments.

Thanks to FairVote.
