Tell your Ohio legislators to draw a fair congressional map this time
More good news! In another 4-3 decision, the Ohio Supreme Court has struck down Ohio's gerrymandered Congressional map. Together with the decision on state legislative maps, this is a huge pair of victories for us here in Ohio, and a rebuke to shameless gerrymanderers everywhere.
Now the legislature has 30 days to draw a new, fair congressional map. We must tell them to get started right away and:
- Hold public hearings to hear from experts and voters;
- Stick to a transparent process;
- Prioritize the needs of voters over short-sighted partisan political concerns.
