California

In 2018, a California Voting Rights Act suit was brought against the city of Mission Viejo, alleging the city's use of block voting to elect its city council unlawfully diluted the votes of Latino voters. While Mission Viejo's Latino population was approximately 17% of the city as of the last census, it had no representation on the city council. As a result, the city agreed to adopt cumulative voting for its city council elections, becoming the first city in California to adopt cumulative voting and the first to adopt a form of fair representation voting as a remedy in a California Voting Rights Act suit.
