A message from Protect Your Vote Ohio:
What is the Ohio Citizens Independent Redistricting Commission, and who’s behind it?
An organization called Voters First Ohio is spearheading a proposed constitutional amendment for the November 2012 ballot that would remove the power of redistricting from elected representatives and give it to a new, unelected state bureaucracy called the Ohio Citizens Independent Redistricting Commission.
Voters First Ohio is an organization supported by liberal organizations like We Are Ohio, ProgressOhio, and a number of unions like the AFL-CIO, SEIU, and AFSCME. Their amendment is based largely off of a California proposal that narrowly passed in 2008.
