Last week, New York City-based good government group Citizens Union released a report titled “Rigged to Maintain Power.” The report analyzes the state’s 2012 redistricting process, and argues that approval of the redistricting reform constitutional amendment would lead to increased competition in state legislative elections by fixing the current partisan process of drawing legislative boundaries.

The redistricting reform amendment, which is on the November ballot, is aimed at removing the process from state lawmakers and in to the hands of a commission appointed by the Assembly and Senate.

While good-government groups are divided on the proposal, Citizens Union argues that it is the best chance to fix the system that has kept incumbents or their parties in the Assembly and Senate in power.

If approved, the redistricting amendment’s changes would take effect for the next round of redistricting in 2022.
