Dan Janison writes in Newsday about the potential impact the pending Evenwel case can have in New York. He writes “in New York State, a change to an “eligible voter” standard could help Republicans in the state Senate, perhaps by adding two non-urban districts upstate.
Within New York City, Brooklyn’s population is estimated to be 30 percent children, versus Manhattan’s child population, which is 9 percent — a possible advantage to the latter borough. Queens and The Bronx could be losers too, analysts say.
By another estimate, New York could lose one of its Democratic-held congressional seats.”
