Why is the district moving away from at-large to trustee-area elections?

Posted by:

In January, the District received a letter alleging that its method of electing members of the Board of Election via an at-large election system violates the California Voting Rights Act. The letter also alleges that the District has a history of racially polarized voting. Since that time, a lawsuit has been filed to compel the District to move to trustee-area elections.
