Judge Orders Palmdale to Halt November Election

LA County courts have granted a motion to stop the city of Palmdale from holding its November election. The ruling says that the city’s at-large system of electing its City Council members, rather than geographic council districts, dilutes the Latino and African-American vote, and prevents communities of color from choosing the candidates of their choice. KPFK’s Jasmine Broderick has the story.
