Onondaga County Elections Commissioners weigh in on new congressional and state legislative districts – WAER

The state’s process started with a bi-partisan commission approved by voters in 2014. But the job was handed to lawmakers after it failed to agree on a single set of maps. Czarny says the commission couldn’t be called independent.

“The word ‘independent’ was not part of the ballot proposal because of a court ruling that it was not independent. It is actually a selection of political appointees. That commission was designed to fail. It was set up to avoid a truly independent citizen-led redistricting commission.”
