Today, the UCLA Voting Rights Project, along with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) served a notice letter to the Franklin County Commission challenging the County Commission鈥檚 electoral system for diluting the voting power of the Latino/a population in Franklin County.

Of the 95,222 Franklin County residents, over 50% (51,001) of its resident population are Latino and over one-third (34.4%) of the citizen voting age population are Latino. Despite the large Latino population, a Latino candidate of choice has not been elected to the Franklin County Commission in the past 20 years.聽
