NDC and the California Voting Right ACT (CVRA)

NDC is the leading demographic expert on the CVRA, having performed demographic assessments of potential CVRA liability for nearly 200 jurisdictions in California.

Tulare, Madera Unified, Modesto, the City of Madera, Visalia, Compton, Escondido, Palmdale, San Mateo County, Anaheim and other jurisdictions all came to NDC for assistance when facing CVRA lawsuits. Hundreds of other jurisdictions came to NDC for analysis of potential liability before the plaintiffs appeared.

NDC President Douglas Johnson has served as an expert witness or consultant in prominent CRVA cases such as Jauregui v. Palmdale (2013). He has been a speaker on the CVRA at conferences of the California School Board Association, the California Latino School Board Member Association, the California League of Cities, and other state and national conferences on redistricting and the Federal and California Voting Rights Acts.
