"We are looking at filing a federal lawsuit challenging the at large system in Houston as discriminatory and a violation of the voting rights act," said LULAC National President Domingo Garcia. "And also we're looking at gathering signatures to let the citizens of Houston decide."

Out of Houston's 16 council seats, 11 are district seats where members represent specific areas, and five are at-large positions.
