2020 New York Maps

Last Updated Oct 22, 2021
Cycle 2020

Overview

As of 2014, New York’s congressional and state legislative lines are drawn by an independent commission, subject to modification by a supermajority of the state legislature. (Democrats currently hold a supermajority of both houses).

On Sept. 15, the commission published two sets of maps for congressional and state legislative districts—one by the Democratic commissioners (called “Letters”) and one by the Republican commissioners (called “Names”).
