CALIFORNIA VOTING RIGHTS ACT- PRESENTATION OF PROPOSED TRUSTEE AREA MAPS BY LEGAL COUNSEL AND DEMOGRAPHER

In 2002, the California legislature enacted the California Voting Rights Act ("CVRA"), which prohibits the use of at-large elections of governing board members for a school district if it "impairs the ability of a protected class to elect candidates of its choice or its ability to influence the outcome of an electionÖ." (Elections Code ß 14027, emphasis added.) The Districtís Board of Trustees previously adopted a resolution to initiate the Districtís transition to a by-trustee area election system commencing with the 2018 Board of Trusteesí election pursuant to the CVRA. As part of the process to transition to by-trustee areas, the District is required to present the proposed trustee area maps to the community for review and feedback.
