Why Did the Election System Change?
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) sent a letter to the City in August of 2016 which asserted that the City was in violation of the California Voting Rights Act of 2001 because the Latino vote was diluted, and Latino voters were prevented from electing candidates of their choice. MALDEF demanded that the City convert to a district-based election system. Cities throughout California and the United States have faced similar challenges and elections for many public agencies are changing from at-large elections to by-district elections. 

A significant public process was undertaken in 2017 to provide information to the community, and to provide opportunities for public input regarding district boundaries. The City’s consultant developed four maps, and residents presented four maps, which were all reviewed at public meetings. The City Council selected a preferred map and the districts were set by Ordinance No. 312, which was passed and adopted at a regular meeting of the Chino Hills City Council on July 11, 2017. When the results of the 2020 Census provide new demographic data, the community will be required to review the district boundaries again.
