Common Cause Ohio has been working to improve elections, hold elected officials accountable and create greater transparency in government since the late 1970s. After many years including both action at the Ohio Statehouse and citizen initiatives, the Ohio General Assembly passed state legislative redistricting reform which voters overwhelmingly approved in 2015. Since then we have continued fighting for fair elections and helped collect more than 200,000 signatures to address congressional gerrymander. In February 2018, the state legislature finally passed congressional redistricting reform which will be Issue 1 of the May Primary Ballot.
