LID Endorses the Vote No on Prop 1 Campaign

At the Fall General Membership meeting on October 1st, LID voted to endorse the Vote No on Prop 1 NY campaign. Proposition 1 is a referendum that will appear on the ballot in November. The amendment would create a 10 member Redistricting Commission—with appointments by legislative party leaders—that is not independent or impartial.

According to the campaign, "this Commission of legislative proxies is almost guaranteed to deadlock, leaving final control of district lines with legislators who will continue to stack the deck to favor incumbents as they do currently. This plan will roll back the ban on prison-based gerrymandering that we fought so hard to achieve."
