Fair Congressional Districts For Ohio

Fair Districts Fair Elections

The Fair Congressional Districts for Ohio campaign is committed to ending the hyperpartisan way in which congressional districts are manipulated by the political party in power. When in power, politicians from both major political parties have drawn the district lines to favor their own political party and created uncompetitive “safe seats” for members of Congress.
Our proposed constitutional initiative would transfer the authority for drawing congressional district lines from the legislature to the bipartisan Ohio Redistricting Commission, and would allow any Ohio Citizen to propose a plan.
We CAN end gerrymandering in Ohio, but it will take hundreds of volunteers like you to get across the finish line. MAKE THE PLEDGE to get 100 or more signatures for fair congressional districts in Ohio — and an organizer will be in touch.

What We Stand For


Fair Congressional Districts for Ohio is a broad coalition of good-government groups that is working to pass an amendment to the Ohio constitution to reform our procedures and criteria for drawing new congressional district boundaries following each decennial census.
Our proposed constitutional initiative builds on the success of the bipartisan Issue 1, which was endorsed by 71.5 percent of Ohio’s voters in the 2015 general election. It would transfer from the legislature to the new bipartisan Ohio Redistricting Commission responsibility for drawing new district lines, and would allow any Ohio citizen to submit a proposed plan for the Commission’s consideration. Any plan would have to receive at least two votes from the representatives of each party on the 7-member Commission in order to be adopted.
Our amendment would also require that any plan must strictly follow a series of good-government criteria.
