If you can't vote, why is your presence a factor in determining representation?

If you have two parents (both U.S. citizens registered to vote) with five kids in a household, should this count as two people for the purpose of Congressional representation, or seven?

I don't think there was ever a time in U.S. history when the answer to this question would have been "two."

That is seven citizens, legally present. Two eligible to vote.

That's different from a household of 7 illegals.
