Merced will move on amendment for district elections

Merced City Council unanimously ordered city staff on Monday to draw up an amendment to the city’s charter that would allow districts for its elections, saying it was just a matter of time before the city would have to drop its at-large system. The decision is a response to a threatened lawsuit from a Latino civil rights group that claims there is not enough representation in Merced.
