Redistricting process

Speakers at a Feb. 9 forum at the Rockefeller Institute addressed how a shift in New York toward more Democrats and more Downstate residents is likely to play out in the redistricting process that will follow this year's census. Critics charge the process has been unfairly driven by incumbent politicians' interests in holding on to power. The forum — Redistricting Reform: Visions for the Future in New York State — was co-sponsored by the Institute and the League of Women Voters of New York State in honor of the League's 90th anniversary.
A summary, audio and videos of the event are now available on the Institute's Web site.
