Redistricting Commission Approves Maps

[September 28, 2023]

The Ohio Redistricting Commission approved new state legislative district maps this week that maintain Republicans majorities in the House and Senate. The new boundaries will be in place for eight years. 
With the new maps, Republicans would have an advantage in roughly 62% of House seats and 70% of Senate seats.
The unanimous vote by the 7-member Commission came late Tuesday evening after a lengthy recess. Senate Minority Leader Nickie Antonio, the commission’s co-chair and one of two Democrats on the Commission, said the compromise maps were better than previous versions. “However, this cycle of redistricting has made it clear that this process does not belong in the hands of politicians,” she said.
