Tell the Ohio Redistricting Commission use the Fair Districts Model Congressional Map
Fair Districts Ohio has unveiled a model congressional map that complies with the Ohio Constitution, abides by the ruling of the Ohio Supreme Court, and delivers fairness and an end to gerrymandering to the people of Ohio.
The model map beats the legislature-drawn map that the Ohio Supreme Court struck down last month in every important measure, scoring higher for proportionality, compactness, competitiveness and minority representation, while minimizing splits and the efficiency gap. That's because the map was drawn with the needs of Ohio’s communities in mind, not with the underlying motivation to unfairly favor one political party over another.
The Ohio General Assembly has failed to draw a new map in the 30 days allocated to it by the court. Now the task goes back to the Ohio Redistricting Commission which will have until March 14.
Tell members of the Ohio Redistricting Commission to use the model map as a starting point in the official congressional mapmaking process.
