This Thursday: 2022 Redistricting Forum for Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo
Village Preservation has invited the League of Women Voters of the City of New York to speak about the process of redistricting and how it has impacted our neighborhoods of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo. The 2022 election cycle in New York has been rocked by unprecedented upheaval resulting from last-minute court-ordered redistricting of state legislative and congressional district lines. Long-standing district boundaries no longer exist, incumbents are running in new districts, and brand new districts have been created. There are two primaries this year — one that took place in June for Assembly and other local state offices, and one in August for the State Senate and Congress.
You don’t have to navigate this alone! We’re here to give you the information and resources you need to be informed about the August 23 primary (with early voting August 13–21, 2022), from how and why the changes happened to what they mean for your district, who’s running, and how to plan to vote. You’ll hear from the nonpartisan experts that have long been trusted in our neighborhoods and beyond [note: both the League of Women Voters and Village Preservation are 501(c)3 organizations and therefore cannot offer endorsements or recommendations on candidates or who to vote for].
This program will prepare you to create your own voting plan for August and beyond.
