If you’ve been following Ohio politics for a while, you probably know that we’re ranked as one of the most gerrymandered states in the country.
Maps like this …
… are why we have members of Congress like this:
So how do we unrig the maps and ensure fair districts in 2022?
The Ohio legislature will draw the new map — so first, we need to elect more Democratic members of the Ohio House and Senate.
But after the new lines are drawn, the Ohio Supreme Court will be the court to review any new attempt to create unfair legislative maps.
And this year, for the first time in decades, we have the opportunity to flip two seats and take a 4-3 majority on the state Supreme Court. These two races will have implications for redistricting, for workers’ rights, for health care and so much more.
Both of our candidates — Jennifer Brunner and John P. O’Donnell — are ahead in polls, meaning that the end of gerrymandering is within our grasp. However, the other side knows it too, and corporate special interests are already signaling they intend to dump huge amounts of money into these races.
We need your help to get our Democratic candidates across the finish line — donate $10 (or $100 — whatever you can) right now to our Ohio Supreme Court Fund.
