In Case You Missed It: Anaheim City Council District Vote and The Irony

ANAHEIM - Amid the protests and riots in 2012 came a lawsuit that alleged Anaheim’s current at-large election system discriminates against Latinos. A settlement soon came requiring a citywide vote on the council districts system on the November ballot, along with the option of expanding the City Council from five members to seven.

Yet nothing is ever as easy as it seems and, in case you missed it, as Adam Elmahrek of Voice of OC reports, "The election that will decide whether the council districts system becomes a reality will be held under the current at large system, which the activists say is tilted against the Latino community."
