Ohio Redistricting Panel Redraws Legislative Maps

Last weekend, Republican members of the Ohio Redistricting Commission adopted revised legislative maps to comply with an order from the Supreme Court of Ohio. Here’s a summary from the OMA’s general counsel Bricker & Eckler.

However, left-leaning organizations have again filed objections to the four-year maps, claiming they are still gerrymandered to favor the GOP. The groups want the Supreme Court of Ohio to invalidate the legislative maps a second time.

Meanwhile, individuals interested in running for the General Assembly face a Feb. 2 filing deadline for the May 3 primary. The deadline for congressional candidates was moved to March 4 under House Bill 93, which has been sent to Gov. Mike DeWine. 1/27/2022
