I can't think of one reason why you should not vote for Issue 1. Why would you not want a clean and fair process for dividing up the state to avoid gerrymandering? Sure, it would be great if this also applied to the federal elections and not just the state, but every good idea takes time to work out. Who would not want to reduce political influence when selecting State Congressional districts? We can't have the people who run for these offices set up the boundaries, because we are regularly going to court to have the judiciary decide. At this time, political parties divide up the state to benefit their own voters to the detriment of the other party. Ohio needs a better way to create balanced and fair Congressional boundaries. For this reason, the NEOCH Board voted to urge our members to support Issue 1. Vote yes on Issue 1.
