Electoral Reforms Endorsed in CA

The National Latino Congreso unanimously endorsed a resolution by Californians for Election Reform calling on Governor Schwarzenegger to sign AB 1294, a bill allowing general law counties and cities in California to implement proportional representation and instant runoff voting should they so choose.

Many Latino empowerment groups have also backed AB 1294, including the Latino Voters League, Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP), and the William C. Velasquez Institute (WCVI).

The Congreso also recommended that instant runoff voting be used in all Los Angeles elections.
