January 3, 2013 - Mineola, New York, U.S. - PATRICK NICOLASI of Elmont, NY, points to the Republican Commissioners' Proposed map, which did not include street names, on the back wall of Nassau County Legislature Chambers. The Nassau County Districting Advisory Commission held a night time meeting on two Redistricting maps for the 19 Legislative Districts, one proposed by Republicans, one by Democrats. In the standing room only chambers, dozens shared their views with the commission during the Public Comment segment. After a brief recess, the commission voted at 10:40 PM for each map, neither of which passed. By January 5 it must complete its work for the Nassau Legislature, which must pass a Redistricting map by March 5, 2013.
