How to use "Apportion" in context?

An "apportionment" is a process used to evenly divide a population between constituencies in a way that reflects the proportion of that population in each constituency. This is done in order to ensure that the votes of each constituency are fairly representative of the population within it.

For instance, if there are 100 people in constituency A and 200 people in constituency B, and each voter has a one-to-one relationship to each person in their constituency, then the apportionment process would divide the population evenly between the two constituencies (100/200 = 50% each).
