There are five yes or no questions on the 2021 general election ballot across New York, asking voters to approve or disapprove changes to the state constitution. All the items on the ballot have been passed by two successive classes of the State Legislature and now go to the voters. They includes measures related to legislative redistricting, voting, clean air and water, and more.

Four experts joined host Ben Max for a Manhattan Neighborhood Network discussion of the five ballot questions. They are Melody Lopez, Executive Director of New York Civic Engagement Table; Eric Friedman of the NYC Campaign Finance Board and NYC Votes; Pamela Stewart-Martinez of WE ACT for Environmental Justice; and Jeffrey M. Wice of the NY Census & Redistricting Institute at New York Law School. Watch:
