Redistricting reformers waited for a long time to kick off the Fair Congressional Districts for Ohio campaign. Ohio voters can't be faulted for assuming that the legislature would take action after the successful passage of Issue 1 in 2015, which won by more than 71% of the vote and in all 88 counties. When the Ohio General Assembly failed to act, redistricting reformers began circulating petitions and we now have over 174,000 signatures.
After two public hearings of state legislature's Congressional Redistricting Reform Working Group, legislators have reported some productive conversations. Let's make sure that those discussions continue to focus on what's best for Ohio voters, rather than what's good for those in power.
It's time to end gerrymandering and our legislators must either walk away or pass real, substantive redistricting reform.
