Welcome to the Ohio Redistricting Commission website. The Commission was created by an amendment to the Ohio Constitution, which was approved by 71% of Ohio voters in November 2015.
Who is on the Commission
The Ohio Redistricting Commission is comprised of seven members:
- One individual appointed by the Senate President
- One individual appointed by the Speaker of the House
- One individual appointed by the Senate Minority Leader
- One individual appointed by the House Minority Leader
- The Governor
- The Auditor
- The Secretary of State
What the Commission Does
Every 10 years after the U.S. Census, Ohio's 99 House districts and 33 Senate districts must be redrawn to reflect the results of the most recent Census. The Ohio Redistricting Commission is tasked with redrawing each of those legislative districts. This decade marks the first time the newly configured Ohio Redistricting Commission will redraw Ohio's House and Senate districts under new criteria overwhelmingly approved by Ohioans in 2015. This website seeks to inform the public about the Commission's work.
