ISSUE 1- CREATES A BIPARTISAN, PUBLIC PROCESS FOR DRAWING CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTSTATE OF OHIO – Proposed Constitutional Amendment
Issue 1 - Creates a bipartisan, public process for drawing congressional districts.
Proposed by Joint Resolution of the General Assembly To amend the version of Section 1 of Article XI that is scheduled to take effect January 1, 2021, and to enact Sections 1, 2, and 3 of Article XIX of the Constitution of the State of Ohio to establish a process for congressional redistricting.
A majority yes vote is necessary for the amendment to pass.
The proposed amendment would:
• End the partisan process for drawing congressional districts, and replace it with a process with the goals of promoting bipartisanship, keeping local communities together, and having district boundaries that are more compact.
• Ensure a transparent process by requiring public hearings and allowing public submission of proposed plans.
• Require the General Assembly or the Ohio Redistricting Commission to adopt new congressional districts by a bipartisan vote for the plan to be effective for the full 10-year period.
• Require that if a plan is adopted by the General Assembly without significant bipartisan support, it cannot be effective for the entire 10-year period and must comply with explicit anti-gerrymandering requirements.
If passed, the amendment will become effective immediately.
SHALL THE AMENDMENT BE APPROVED?
