My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

New York’s redistricting process is going very, very, slowly…

Here’s a piece from The New York Times that explains why:

Each state must redraw its political maps to reflect the 2010 census, but New York, which has approved neither legislative nor Congressional districts for this year’s elections, is among the last to comply. Redistricting has become increasingly urgent because of the calendar; the state’s Congressional primary is scheduled to be on June 26, and its legislative primary on Sept. 11.

    Hey Morse. Do you support President Obama’s current CB investment in order to bring down future costs? Why aren’t you calling out Republican errors in judgement when they cut off funding to important economic data gathering and reporting tasks?
