Event Details

NYLS’s New York Census and Redistricting Institute is presenting a press briefing on the New York State congressional and state legislative redistricting process.

The Institute’s Director, Adjunct Professor Jeff Wice, will provide an overview of the process and will take questions afterwards. Professor Wice is an experienced redistricting expert who has worked on state and city redistricting for several cycles and has assisted in other states across the nation. He is also the co-editor/author of the 2020 Redistricting Redbook, a handbook published by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). 

The Institute released a brief primer on the state’s new congressional and state legislative redistricting process. This year, a new “Independent Redistricting Commission” has been tasked with developing new maps to recommend to the legislature for consideration. The primer outlines the new process, rules, and redistricting schedule.
