The Senate of New Ingerland elects a portion of it's membership from eight geographical constituencies. Each constituency is coterminous with the counties, and consists of a number of House of Assembly electoral districts.

The geographical constituencies use the D'Hondt method of proportional representation, with members drawn from closed party lists.


Geographical constituencies were established in 1970, creating an elected component of the Senate for the first time. Then, as now, the constituencies were based on the counties, with each constituency returning four members.
