#1 - What is the difference between "at-large" and "by-district" elections?

We currently have an at-large election system, where voters of the entire City elect all members of the City Council. “By-district” elections would divide the City into geographic districts. Voters in each district would choose their Councilmember, who must also live in that district; but the Mayor would continue to be elected at-large.
