Lawmakers in New York are preparing for the once-a-decade redistricting process that could alter the political landscape in the state and change how voters and regions are represented in the halls of power in Albany and Washington.
Later today, the first of eight regional hearings will be held on the redistricting process, with the commission charged with drawing political boundaries for the House of Representatives and the state Legislature meeting on Long Island.
And both state and federal lawmakers want their constituents to be engaged with these meeting amid a new process following a constitutional amendment in 2014 that turned much of the work over to an independent commission appointed by the state Legislature.
Lawmakers in recent days have sought to rally voters to participate in the process and the public hearings.
