    Reduce the number of electoral districts (make the boundaries wider). With today's social media, personal appearances are no longer necessary for elected officials to do their jobs in representing their territory. They can use web input, surveys, etc., instead.

    Reducing the number will reduce the cost of government, without reducing services.

    (Although it helps during electioneering and thus there will be huge push-back from elected officials for this idea!)
