Research Shows Latino Votes in Santa Rosa Don't “Count”

Latino voters consistently cast ballots for individuals and issues that non-Latino voters -- still a sizeable majority -- do not support, according to a systematic analysis of voting patterns in Santa Rosa sponsored by the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy.  As a result, Latino interests are not well represented in local government.

The recent report, “Minority Voting Patterns in Santa Rosa, California” by David A. Selby, a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley and Kelly P. Wurtz, a visiting assistant professor at Lehigh University, was first presented at a community forum in February. Copies of the study (paper or digital) are now available for purchase online.
