   (D)   I.C. 36-4-6-5(j) and I.C. 36-4-6-5(l) are hereby adopted to provide that the city shall be divided in three Councilmanic Districts as provided above, and that each voter in the city may vote for two candidates for at large membership and one candidate from the district in which the voter lives.  The two at large candidates receiving the most votes from whole city and the district candidate receiving the most votes from their respective districts will be elected to the City Council.
   (E)   The city finds that the boundaries for the Councilmanic Districts have been drawn in order to insure that they contain, as nearly as possible, equal populations and thus they cross existing precinct boundary lines.
