Evangelina “Bengie” Aguilar, Candy “Dulce” Gutierrez, Rogelino Montes, Susan Soto Palmer
The aforesaid Yakima County residents, who are LatinX, believe they do not have an equal opportunity to elect candidates of their choice or an equal opportunity to influence the outcome of an election because of alleged vote dilution and polarized voting. One type of remedy they believe may address the alleged violation of RCW 26A.92.030 is single member districts with ranked choice voting.
The aforesaid Yakima County residents may be contacted through their attorneys at:Campaign Legal Center: 125 Cambridgepark Drive, Suite 301 Cambridge, MA 02140
