NYS Election 2014 Redistricting Ballot Proposal. The Governor and the State Legislature have agreed on a plan to reform the manner in which state legislative and congressional districts are drawn in New York. The plan which requires an amendment to the State Constitution, will appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot. Although the League supports the proposal, many other good government groups do not. Join us and learn about the proposed amendment so that you can make an informed choice on how to vote on it on Election Day.

NYS Redistricting Proposal Information. For more than 50 years, New York elected officials have controlled the redistricting process, drawing district lines that protect them from challengers and eliminate fair, competitive elections. New Yorkers now have the opportunity to fix this problem of a rigged system by voting Yes for Proposition 1 this November 4th. This state constitutional amendment will ban partisan gerrymandering by outlawing legislative maps drawn for political advantage and give New Yorkers new power to hold legislators accountable. To learn more about the proposition and why the League of Women Voters and Citizens Union have joined together in support of the proposal attend our informational meeting on October 21st at the Liverpool Library. See page 1 for all the details. Information is on the LWVNYS website-- http://www.lwvny.org. or voteyesforprogress.org
