Council to consider switching to district-based elections February 13

The Mission Viejo City Council on Tuesday, February 13 is expected to decide whether to transition from at-large to district-based council member elections during its fifth public hearing on the matter. The public hearing begins at 6 p.m. in the Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center. The hearings, which started late last year, were prompted by a demand letter the City of Mission Viejo received from a Malibu-based law firm claiming the City’s at-large election system dilutes the vote of the Latino community. Since then, the City has sought public input regarding the composition of the districts; content of draft maps; and the proposed sequence of elections. To simplify the public’s participation, the City created a how-to video for drawing district maps as well as webpages with history and information about the process.  Council meetings, which are streamed live at https://cityofmissionviejo.org/stream, take place in the Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center.
