The Albany County Legislature has voted to create a plan for redistricting.
The plan would reset election districts based on the 2020 census.
In the past, lawmakers have been hit with lawsuits claiming the election districts they established did not sufficiently recognize minority populations.
The new law creates an independent commission and a subcommittee to create the new districts.
