George Willyard, Col John Thomas, Benjamin West and
George Bowlus, of the third election district of the county
aforesaid, be, and they are hereby authorised and appointed,
or a majority of them, commissioners to lay off and divide
anew the third election district, into two election districts, and
to number the new election district formed out of the
third election district; and to make choice of a place in the
said new election district so laid off, at which the elections
shall be held, having due regard to the accommodation of
persons attendant upon such elections; and the said commissioners
shall on or before the third Monday in April, eighteen
hundred and thirty-one, deliver to the clerk of Frederick
county court, a description in writing under their hands and

where the elections for such districts shall be held; and the
said clerk shall record the same in the records of said county.
Sec. 4. And be it enacted, That the Sheriff of Frederick
county shall give notice of the place of holding the election

holding the election in October eighteen hundred and thirty-one.
Sec. 5. And be it enacted, That if any of the commissioners
named in this act, shall die, remove out of the county, or

eighteen hundred and thirty-one, the remaining commissioners,
or a majority of them, are hereby authorised and directed
to fill such vacancy or vacancies.
Sec. 6. And be it enacted, That each commissioner shall
be entitled to receive at the rate of two dollars per day, for
every day he shall act in the discharge of the duties imposed
on him, by the provisions of this act, to be assessed and levied
by the levy court of Frederick county, as other county
charges are; which said sums, when levied and collected,
shall be paid over as other county charges are.
Sec. 7. And be it enacted, That if this act shall be confirmed
by the General Assembly of Maryland, after the next
election of Delegates, during the first session after such new
election, as the constitution and form of government directs,

shall constitute and be considered as a part of the constitution
and form of government, to all intents and purposes, any thing
therein contained, to the contrary notwithstanding.
