Ohio Redistricting Commission Issues New Legislative District Boundaries, but Original Objectors Ask State Supreme Court to Reject New Plan

On January 26, the Ohio League of Women Voters asked the State Supreme Court to again reject the work of the Ohio Redistricting Commission. The State Supreme Court already rejected the commission’s original plan, and the League says the revised plan is also inadequate. Here is the filing in League of Women Voters of Ohio v Ohio Redistricting Commission, 2021-1193.

The Commission is also working on a revised U.S. House plan, but that isn’t finished yet.

  1. As I have said before, even so-called “non-partisan” redistricting commissions can’t make everyone happy.

    What ought to be considered is that representatives ought to be distributed among counties according to arithmetic rules set in the state constitution, with requirements that districts be of a minimum geographic size, such that counties in metro areas will end up with multi member districts.
