2020 Census Redistricting

Purpose

Here are materials and information about redistricting based on the 2020 census. A subgroup of our membership is collecting information about redistricting on all levels: local representation within Tompkins County, NY State representation for Tompkins County, and Federal Congressional representation for Tompkins County.

Materials and information about the current 2021 redistricting process

The current redistricting is based on data from the 2020 census.

A subgroup of our membership is collecting information about redistricting in Tompkins county:

1. Local representation: town, city and county levels

2. NY State representation: NY Assembly and NY Senate

3. Federal Congressional representation: House of Representatives

To orient yourself, use vote411.org to find your current voting districts.
Current district Maps can be found here: https://www2.tompkinscountyny.gov/boe/maps

The materials are currently being organized by Ann Warde (amw38@cornell.edu).

If you would like to join the study group, or if you have suggestions for items to include on this page, please let us know.

This collection of materials is intended to be a resource for the redistricting group to use as we determine how we might most usefully involve ourselves in the redistricting process, and for the actions we undertake.

We are partnering with other NY State counties, including Cortland and others nearby.
