Redistricting commission proposes new Assembly lines for 2024 election, with some changes in the Bronx


The final chapter has yet to be written for New York state’s redistricting chronicles, a process that will drag out into 2023 with new Assembly maps under consideration.

The redistricting process takes place every 10 years, and this cycle was far from straightforward. The bipartisan Independent Redistricting Commission failed to agree on statewide maps by the deadline in January, resulting in the state Legislature, held by a Democratic supermajority, drawing their own.

That didn’t go so well.

The state Senate and Congressional maps, drawn in favor of Democrats, were ruled unconstitutional in April, and a court-appointed special master redrew them before being approved by the court in May.
