- Ohio Supreme Court Orders Voting Districts To Be Re-Drawn
- Republican Angie King To Run For Ohio House
- New Ohio Legislative District Map Places Mercer County In New District
- Governor DeWine Signs Bill Approving New Congressional Map
It is a bit confusing…on January 13th King announced her intentions to run for the open seat in the 82nd District (district includes Mercer, Van Wert, Paulding counties, and part of Defiance County). Right after that the Ohio Supreme Court ruled the districts must be redrawn.The 4-3 decision concluded the maps are invalid, because the Ohio Redistricting Commission did not attempt to draw legislative districts that correspond with voter preference.
Map waiting approval from Supreme Court….
