Wondering where your home may fall in the latest round of Albany’s redistricting rendezvous? We’ve got you covered.
Courtesy of Journal News database whiz Tim Henderson comes this nifty database that should aid in your quest to find out which Congressional district you would reside in under the state Assembly and Senate’s separate plans.
So how does the database work? It’s simple. Enter your address in the box, and it will show you an outline of the Senate GOP and Assembly Democrats’ proposals for your Congressional district, along with the district as it’s currently aligned.
A quick refresher: Unable to come to a deal on new Congressional districts, Assembly Democrats and Senate Republicans released separate proposals last week. The two plans both eliminated the Southern Tier/mid-Hudson Valley district of retiring Rep. Maurice Hinchey, but varied widely upstate and in New York City’s outer boroughs.
A court-appointed “special master” is holding a public hearing today on the proposals—as well as close to a dozen others submitted to the court—and will release her own set of maps next Monday.
