GOP Members of the Ohio Redistricting Commission “Failed the Fair Districts Assignment” a Third Time

Statement of Catherine Turcer, Common Cause Ohio Executive Director 

“Once again, the majority members of the Ohio Redistricting Commission have shown that they would rather fail an assignment than actually do their homework. Failing to produce fair maps isn’t an option, no matter how many times they may try.

The assignment is simple: draw fair maps that prioritize the voters over political parties. Today, they failed the fair districts assignment for a third time.

Their willingness to intentionally derail the redistricting process does nothing but erode voters’ trust in our government. We expect them to carefully study the constitutional requirements for fair districts and turn in a complete assignment.”
