Description:
Come hear leading election law experts talk about what needs to be done to improve the process of redistricting in New York. Top redistricting experts will discuss: What happened with the recent New York State redistricting process and why. Is the current process any better than methods used in the past? What do we need to do now to improve the process for next time? How is the New York City process different? Is it better at balancing constitutional priorities and what’s ahead?
