Ohio has been working on addressing gerrymandering, or the manipulation of legislative districts for partisan advantage, for many years. Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) and Rep. Michael Curtin (D- Columbus) introduced a resolution to reform congressional redistricting reform in the Ohio House of Representatives. Senator Frank LaRose (R-Hudson) and Senator Tom Sawyer (D-Akron) have introduced a resolution in the Ohio Senate. Despite the overwhelming support for state legislative redistricting reform last fall, neither of these resolutions have received a hearing.
