Program: District Elections for Poway?
Speaker: Esther Sanchez
The City of Poway received a letter from an attorney stating that Poway's at-large elections were in violation of the California Voting Rights Act and demanded the city switch to district elections. The City of Oceanside and other county cities have received a similar letter and have begun the process of switching to district elections. Council Member, Sanchez, will discuss the background and motivation of the letters, why Oceanside decided to change, and what Poway can expect as the process moves forward.
