Evenwel Can Have Major Impact In New York Politics

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.”
