Voters Approve Redistricting Amendment Creating Advisory Commission

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.

The results:

Pro   1,479,914   42.9%

Con  1,098,307   31.8%
