The manual recount required to determine if the Cayuga County Legislature would be downsized in 2024 is complete.
Voters narrowly approved the proposition on the ballot with the margin being less than 100 total votes.
The legislature will now be downsized from 15 to 11 seats. New legislative districts will be formed to create the 11-member body.
Four of the districts will be within the city of Auburn, while the rest are outside.
The legislature was mostly supportive of downsizing. Another change will be the end of ‘weighted’ voting.
