Connections: Understanding redistricting
Election Day is less than a month away. This year, there are five proposals on the ballot -- four of which will directly impact voters in Western New York. This hour, we discuss the first proposal: Amend the process for determining congressional and state legislative districts. Our guests weigh in on the process of redistricting at the state/federal and county/local levels. The County Legislature and the Independent Redistricting Commission are hosting public hearings about proposed state maps.

- Jennifer Wilson, deputy director of the League of Women Voters of New York State
- Tom Ferrarese, member of the League of Women Voters, and former Commissioner of the Board of Elections
