CITIZENS NOT POLITICIANS IS A PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT PUTS THE POWER TO MAKE DISTRICT MAPS INTO THE HANDS OF OHIO CITIZENS.
THIS IS HOW WE GET FAIR MAPS.
HERE'S WHAT THE AMENDMENT WOULD DO:
Create the 15-member Ohio Citizens Redistricting Commission made up of Democratic, Republican, and Independent citizens who broadly represent the different geographic areas and demographics of the state.
Ban current or former politicians, political party officials, and lobbyists from sitting on the Commission.
Require fair and impartial districts by making it unconstitutional to draw voting districts that discriminate against or favor any political party or individual politician.
Require the commission to operate under an open and independent process.
