Weekly Reporter Roundtable
The state’s high court has rejected the Ohio Redistricting Commission’s fourth set of state legislative district maps, and suggested in its ruling that the commission could return to the work of independent mapmakers for a head start.
Meanwhile, ohio primary voters will consider just statewide and congressional contests on the may 3 ballot while the state senate and house maps are up in the air.
Those maps created 54 Republican and 46 Democratic House districts and 18 Republican and 15 Democratic Senate districts. Opponents pointed to a disproportionate number of districts that are essentially toss-up races for democrats and that would give an unfair advantage to Republicans.
Coming up on our weekly reporter roundtable, the nail-biting process of state legislative district map drawing.
