The Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials said Tuesday it intends to file a federal lawsuit asserting Gainesville’s at-large voting system violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Gainesville City Council has said the system gives good representation to all citizens by allowing all residents to vote for each city representative. The positions of mayor and council seats for wards 1 and 4 are up for election in November.
