A resident-sponsored ballot initiative would not delay or prevent the filing of a California Voting Rights Act (CVRA) letter/lawsuit by third parties who believe the City’s elections are not in compliance with the CVRA. If a CVRA letter is filed before the next election in June 2022, the City would be forced to undergo the districting process under a more condensed timeline to meet the law’s strict time frame, as well as potentially face less autonomy over how the district lines are formed.
