LWVCA members including Board Member Joan Gilmore, are active this summer gathering petition signatures to get Fair U.S. Congressional Districts on the ballot. Fair Districts is a citizen initiative for an Ohio constitutional amendment to reform the process of drawing U.S. Congressional districts and end political gerrymandering.
The League office in the Mt. Auburn Presbyterian Church is a regional distribution center for petitions. Office volunteers are responding to a large increase in phone calls and foot traffic as people pick up and drop off petitions.
Ohio LWV is one of three nonpartisan groups leading the petition campaign. Numerous signatures were gathered in the first four weeks of the campaign, but not the huge numbers needed to meet the July deadline to get the issue on the 2017 ballot. We hope to keep up the momentum over the summer and have enough signatures to turn in this year to qualify as Issue One in 2018. The reforms will be put into practice after the 2020 census.
Bette Evanshine is coordinating the Fair Districts campaign for LWVCA. How you can help:
