Hispanic Voting Rights

Saturday, March 17, 2012

We discuss Hispanic voting rights, and how recent legislation in Olympia may force Yakima to change the way it elects its city council representatives.

About the Episode

Despite the fact that Hispanics represent 41% of Yakima's population, the city has never elected a Latino to city council. But is the way representatives are elected here to blame? We discuss recent legislation in Olympia, which may force Yakima to change the way it elects its representatives.
