Powered by All About Redistricting
A three-judge federal trial court adopted congressional and state legislative maps in Ohio that the state's supreme court had previously held were partisan gerrymanders in violation of the state constitution.
The Ohio Supreme Court set filing deadlines for arguments related to the state's contested congressional maps that extend beyond the May 3 primary. Petitioners must file their brief by May 3 and respondents may then respond by May 20. Petitioners may file a reply by May 27. The upshot is that the 2022 congressional election will take place using a set of districts that are very similar to districts that were previously struck down by the Supreme Court.
Who controls redistricting in Ohio right now?
Republicans fully control the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn by the Republican state legislature and enacted by three-fifths of each chamber. If the legislature fails to pass a map, redistricting falls to a bipartisan commission made up of statewide elected officials and state legislators. If the commission fails to enact a map, a new map may be passed by a simple majority of each chamber and signed into law by the Republican governor, but that map is valid for only four years.
