Common Cause New York Slams Misleading Redistricting Ballot Description

Posted on August 4, 2014

Common Cause New York criticized the language as confusing and misleading because the leadership and appointees of the legislature would make appointments to the proposed commission that will then draw the legislators’ districts.
