The Active Constituencies section in an appeal mailing are selections that are built automatically by the system for all constituencies codes that exist. When using the Active Constituencies Member Constituents selection in an appeal mailing you may notice that the number of constituents included is larger than the amount of constituents that actually have the Constituency Member. The Member Constituency may be pulling Constituents that might have previously had this Constituency.
This was resolved in the latest release of Altru.
