There is a serious constitutional issue.

No, there is not. The courts have decided many times over that special districts like NVTA do not violate the "one person, one vote" rule.

Beyond that, these kinds of administrative districts exist all over the country and throughout many types of limited governmental functions - utilities, transit, etc and have for decades. You think that you're the first person to figure this "one person, one vote" thing out?
