A proposed amendment, Issue 1, is being considered in Ohio right now for the fourth time. Issue 1 will reduce gerrymandering by having the General Assembly districts approve of two or more redistricting commissioners from each party for 10-year duration districts. If these districts don't win enough votes, then the districts will have a 4 year limit, and by then, the Redistricting Commission will be redrawing districts again. Issue 1 has been brought up three times, but was rejected each time. Now, there is a bipartisan support of this amendment, but it's ultimately up to the people's vote.
What do you think will happen? Considering how Ohio has a history or gerrymandering, do you think this amendment will be passed? What do you think the effects will be if this is passed or not passed? Should the government do more to enforce states to not gerrymander? What are your thoughts? We talked about gerrymandering today, so I thought this would be a fitting topic of discussion.
