The Ohio State Supreme Court, on a divided 4-3 vote with the Republican Chief Justice voting with the three Democratic members, invalidated the Ohio Redistricting Commission’s state House and Senate maps for reasons of political gerrymandering. The Commission is comprised of elected officials whose produced maps require the Ohio legislature’s approval. The Commission must now redraw the map with greater attention to statewide voter history percentages. The Court took no action on the new congressional map, but that challenge remains alive.
