Who controls redistricting in New York right now?
Democrats fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by a bipartisan commission made up of citizens, but the Democratic state legislature can modify or reject the commission's proposals. The final map must be passed by two-thirds of each chamber and signed into law by the Democratic governor.
