The State Redistricting Commission will be hosting a virtual hearing to provide Westchester residents an opportunity to share information about their communities and discuss how district lines can be improved. Sharing testimony at a redistricting hearing is a powerful way of shaping your community’s district maps for the next decade to come. By participating in hearings, you can ensure that your communities are accounted for and are best represented in the legislative process. The Commission will incorporate the public’s input and use gathered testimony to draw district lines. You must register to attend and testify or to submit written testimony without attending a hearing. To go over the redistricting timeline, teach you how to draw your own community maps and draft compelling testimony, Common Cause NY will be hosting and recording a virtual training session.
