Who Are We?
The Fair Districts = Fair Elections Coalition seeks to reform the way Ohio's Congressional Districts are drawn with the goal of prohibiting, or at least reducing, partisan gerrymandering. Additionally, the Coalition seeks to increase fairness and accountability in the Congressional map-making process. The Coalition has been urging the state legislature to place Congressional Redistricting Reform on the ballot, and we are gearing up for an initiative to put it before voters if the legislature refuses to do so. In November 2015, voters overwhelmingly passed State Issue 1, which was proposed by the legislature. This bipartisan redistricting proposal created a more fair and transparent process for drawing state legislative districts - but it did not include Congressional districts. We believe Ohioans deserve fair districts for all of our elected legislators, state and U.S. Congress.
