Anti-Gerrymandering Amendment Passed

posted by Kevin Coleman - 

Ohio voters have overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment that will change the way our battleground state draws congressional districts. 


Issue 1 had support from both Democrats and Republicans and faced virtually no organized opposition.  The proposal was modeled after new map-making rules for Ohio legislative districts that voters strongly supported in 2016. 


The latest proposal aims to curb gerrymandering, the partisan manipulation of political boundaries that's seen as a cause of partisanship, gridlock and incivility in Washington.


The amendment limits how counties are split into multiple districts and requires more support from the minority party to put a 10-year map in place.
