Ohio Supreme Court rejects Congressional district map; remands map to be redrawn
January 17, 2022
In another 4-3 decision, the Ohio Supreme Court rejected the congressional district map by returning it to the Ohio General Assembly, where Republicans hold supermajorities in both chambers, and then to the Ohio Redistricting Commission. The two bodies have a combined 60 days to draw new lines that comply with a 2018 constitutional amendment voted overwhelmingly by Ohioans against gerrymandering. Another victory for all Ohioans and voter rights advocates!
