Virtual Hearing Guidelines

The Independent Redistricting Commission of New York State is holding a virtual public hearing to solicit input from your community. As the IRC embarks on the process of drawing the future district lines of New York State, feedback and guidance from the residents of New York are of the utmost importance and at the core of the Commission’s goal to fairly and equitably redraw Congressional and State Legislature lines.

These hearings are the best opportunity for residents to participate in this process. By submitting your community of interest to the IRC, and presenting it at your local hearing, New Yorkers have the chance to contribute to the redistricting process.

Please be sure to register no later than 2:00 pm the day prior to your community’s hearing.

The IRC also welcomes public comment and feedback on the redistricting process. Participants will have up to three (3) minutes of speaking time. Participants are encouraged to submit written testimony. This includes, but is not limited to: how do you as a resident feel about the current lines outlining your district? What would you like the IRC to know about your community of interest? All hearings will be recorded for public record, also live-streamed as they occur.

These virtual public hearings with communities throughout the State will occur before the Census data is released in August.
