Tell the Ohio Redistricting Commission to draw better maps
Great news! In a 4-3 decision, the Ohio Supreme Court has struck down the gerrymandered Ohio House and Senate district maps approved by the Ohio Redistricting Commission (ORC) and ordered that they be redrawn. This is a tremendous victory for every Ohio voter and our representative democracy.
Now the Commission must draw new, fair maps. Urge them to:
- Swiftly hold meaningful public hearings to hear from experts as well as Ohio voters;
- Draw maps through a transparent and bipartisan process;
- Keep communities together and prioritize the needs of voters over short-sighted, partisan political concerns; and
- Create districts that are fair and proportional to how Ohioans vote, adhering to the 54 percent R, 46 percent D proportional breakdown specified by the court.
