Done only once every ten years, New York will soon begin its decennial redrawing of district lines that determine local representation in Albany and Washington, D.C.
Official census data is set for release in August.
Once that happens, a new map will be completed and delivered to the state legislature in September.
This process has been overseen by an independent commission since 2014, subject to changes by a supermajority from both the assembly and senate.
Residents can participate in the discussion through a series of scheduled virtual public hearings:
Comments or testimony can also be submitted in writing on the following:
- How do you as a resident feel about the current lines outlining your district?
- What would you like the Independent Redistricting Committee to know about your community?
Each hearing will be live streamed and recorded.
