Common Cause Ohio Slams the Ohio Redistricting Commission for “Assault on Voters”

Yesterday evening, in an act of stunning lawlessness and arrogance, four majority members of the Ohio Redistricting Commission (Gov. DeWine, Sec. Of State LaRose, state Senator McColley, and Rep. Jeff LaRe) voted to adopt a set of General Assembly maps that have already been struck down as unconstitutional by the Ohio Supreme Court.

"With only one day remaining before the May 6 deadline for a fifth map, Fair Districts Ohio urges the Redistricting Commission to adopt the independent set of maps drawn by bipartisan experts Dr. Douglas Johnson and Dr. Michael McDonald."

State Supreme Court Rules State Legislative Maps Drawn to Unduly Favor Party in Power

Ohio’s Fourth Attempt at Mapmaking Unsuccessful

In open defiance of the Ohio Constitution and the Ohio Supreme Court, a majority of the GOP members of the Commission jettisoned the work of the bipartisan, independent mapmakers and—hours before the deadline—switched in and officially adopted a set of maps based on General Assembly maps previously struck down by the Court.

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.

Fair Districts Ohio Statement on Adoption of New Congressional Map

The Fair Districts Ohio coalition rejects the claim that the latest congressional map adopted along party lines by the Ohio Redistricting Commission meets the requirements set forth in the Ohio Constitution.
