Fair Districts Petition Drive Continues
The effort to support the Fair Districts Now Initiative is continuing This is a ballot initiative to change the way Congressional Districts are drawn in Ohio, to end gerrymandering by amending the Ohio Constitution. Over 1,000 petitions are already in circulation in Hamilton County in the hands of Democratic Party volunteers. But we need more.
If you can circulate a petition we have plenty at our office, 6109 Webbland Place in Pleasant Ridge. If you are interested there is a training video that explains this issue and the do's and don'ts of circulating petitions which can be seen here.
Our office hours during this petition drive are (at least) Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
It's worth noting that the Brennan Center for Justice just a not long ago released a detailed study of gerrymandering around the country. They measured gerrymandering using three different statistical metrics. What they found was Ohio was one of the worst if not the worst gerrymandered state in the country. Ohio was ranked worst in two of the three metrics. The graph here illustrates one of them.
Let's get this done. People have been asking what they can do. Well here is one thing that can be done which is very important. Let's make our votes for Congress count.
