Editorial: Cayuga County Legislators Should Prioritize Redistricting

From an editorial in the Auburn Citizen: “On a legislative body, that concept makes sense for arriving at collective decisions in a fair and equitable manner. And we suspect that if you polled the 15 members of the Cayuga County Legislature, most would agree with the idea.

But despite decades of opportunities to work toward the equal districts concept, Cayuga County residents remain stuck with a weighted vote system that spreads out a wide range of voting power among the individual elected legislators.”

This debate should focus on whether the weighted voting districts violate the one-person/one vote standard.
