The Congressional Redistricting Reform Initiative

Great news! 

The Congressional redistricting reform initiative has been approved by the Ohio Attorney General and Ballot Board. Now, it is time to prepare to circulate the petitions to get this initiative on the ballot. Over 305,000 verifiable signatures must be collected — and if that’s completed by early July, this could be on the November 2017 ballot.

If you signed up to collect signatures, or are now interested, we want to support you!  We are forming our neighborhood teams and hope you will participate.  Our goal is to both collect signatures and begin a discussion within our local community about redistricting. This amendment will go on the ballot in the future, and we want voters to be educated and engaged when it does.

Some of the Wooster Corridor Democratic Club members have attended or viewed trainings on how to circulate the petitions, and we will be sharing that information at upcoming events – as well as coordinating with the Ohio and Hamilton County Democratic Parties to help us spread the word through canvassing and other efforts in our neighborhood.

There are two upcoming events at which you can learn more:

You can also get more information directly from the Fair Districts = Fair Elections Coalition at http://www.fairdistrictsohio.org – or by watching this Webinar.
We look forward to hearing from you!

With thanks,
Your Mariemont Precinct Executives
