Redistricting Commission To Vote On 2024 New York Congressional Map Shortly

US

The New York Independent Redistricting Commission is set to meet shortly for a vote on the final congressional map for the 2024 cycle and onwards, after the NY Court of Appears upheld a Democrat appeal in December that the maps used in 2022 were temporary.

  • The resulting map is expected to make minor adjustments to help Democrats in some battleground races, but avoid aggressive changes which could prompt a length legal challenge.
  • With New York shaping up as a major swing state in House elections, the new map could net the Democrats one or two additional seats in November, based on current district leans.
  • This week's win by former Democrat Rep Tom Suozzi (D) in a special election in New York's third Congressional district appears to suggest that the state's 'mini red wave' at the 2022 midterms could be reversed by Democrats with effective messaging on key issues like immigration and crime.
  • CNN notes: "If not redemption, the New York Democratic Party in this special election earned a reprieve. Whether it can translate what worked – with different, perhaps weaker candidates – in the fall remains to be seen."
