How to use Seeds of Democracy provides information and resources about our elected officials in New York’s 19th Congressional District including contact information and links to federal and state representatives. We are also including recent votes from Megavote for U.S. Senate and House of Representative elected officials. Past voting information is linked to for N.Y. State legislators.

This may be helpful in keeping track of how your representatives are doing their jobs but there are additional things you can do to be an educated voter. Sign up for Megavote and John Faso’s newsletter at Become familiar with and check your elected officials’ websites periodically. Hold your state representatives responsible when Congress funds state programs.

Of special note: Look at the New York Assembly and State Senate district maps. These maps tell a story; 19th CD districts are examples of classic gerrymandering. You’ll notice that a neighboring towns may have different State Senators or Assembly members. Redistricting begins after the 2020 U.S. census and we all need to make our elected officials responsible for creating impartial districts.

Informed people are the best voters!
