Why does Jim Jordan’s district stretch from Lima to Oberlin? It’s because of gerrymandering. That’s when voting districts are drawn in a way that favors the candidate from one party. The result: communities are broken up and elections becomes less competitive.
This May 8, Ohioans have a rare chance to make our elections more fair. Issue 1 would create a bipartisan approach to drawing congressional voting districts. Those drawing the district lines would be required to keep communities together, and not favor one party over another.
Everyone agrees that this is a good idea. The Ohio Democratic Party and the Ohio Republican Party support Issue 1.
Keep our communities together and our politicians responsible. Vote yes on Issue 1!
