Ohio Supreme Court Strikes Down Gerrymandered State Legislative Maps

Late last night, the Ohio Supreme Court struck down gerrymandered state legislative maps adopted by the Ohio Redistricting Commission on February 24, 2022. The court found the invalid maps were drawn to unduly favor the Republican party and thus violated Ohio’s new redistricting rules added to the Ohio Constitution in 2015.

Ohio is not ready to start planning for an accurate election until we have fair maps in place.”
