New York State voters approved Proposal 1 yesterday, creating a commission to submit congressional and state legislative redistricting plans to the state legislature for approval beginning in 2022.
Unless a state constitutional convention meets later in the decade, the amendment’s commission will be used after the 2020 census. In 2017, voters will be asked whether to convene a constitutional convention to meet before 2020.
