COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The panel overseeing the redrawing of Ohio’s legislative districts for the coming decade is traveling the state this week to gather input on what the maps should look like.
The first of nine public hearings hosted by the new Ohio Redistricting Commission kicks off Monday morning in Cleveland. An afternoon forum takes places in Youngstown.
The panel moves on to Dayton and Cincinnati on Tuesday; Zanesville and Rio Grande on Wednesday; Lima and Toledo on Thursday; and Akron and Mansfield on Friday. The commission’s co-chairs said Ohioans can use the meetings to contribute ideas or maps.
