Background
 

California Community College District governing boards are subject to the federal Voting Rights Act and the one person, 美国宪法第十四修正案的一票原则.S. 宪法. The Voting Rights Act prohibits electoral systems that deny or abridge the voting rights of protected racial and language minority groups. 一个人的, once vote principle requires that governing board member districts be as equal in population as possible and that election systems that are at-large meet the one person, 一票测试. 在MLCCD, the trustees are required to be residents of a particular trustee areas and their districts must meet the requirements of the Voting Rights Act.

This redistricting is required under California Education Code 5019.5 (a), 而读, 在某种程度上, 每十年一次的联邦人口普查之后, and using population figures as validated by the Population 研究 Unit of the Department of Finance as a basis, the governing board of each school district or community college district in which trustee areas have been established, and in which each trustee is elected by the residents of the area he or she represents, shall adjust the boundaries of any or all of the trustee areas of the district…"

This section requires school agencies that are divided into trustee areas (by which individual trustees are elected by the registered voters within that area) to adjust the boundaries of those trustee areas consistent with the results of the most recent census. Boundaries need to be adjusted to satisfy at least one of the following conditions:

a)每个区域的人口为, 几乎可能, the same proportion of the total population of the district as the ratio that the number of governing board members elected from the area bears to the total number of members of the governing board. 例如, if a district has five trustees and elects one trustee from each of five trustee areas, each district should have approximately one-fifth of the total population in each trustee area; or

b)每个区域的人口为, 尽可能的接近, the same proportion of the total population of the district as each of the other areas. The general guideline is that the largest trustee area should be no more than 10% more populous than the smallest trustee area in the district, 尽管地区应该, 在最大程度上可行, try to make the trustee areas as close in size by population as possible.
