A Fair Congressional Map for Ohio

Here’s what a fair map would look like for the state of Ohio ©ACBC
A Map of Ohio I drew that closely matched the partisan breakdown of Ohio with one VRA compliant district.
Partisan Voting Index based on 2016 and 2020 Presidential election numbers
Partisan Breakdown of each congressional district.
Toledo based 9th is very competitive and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Conclusion

This is a fair map that accurately represents the light red nature of the Buckeye State. I was able to create compact districts that didn’t resemble salamanders and created three to four swing seats that favors neither party. I scored very high on proportionality and compactness using Dave’s Redistricting App, a tool that allows anyone to create their own districts.

Compactness score is 64 and Proportionality (meaning it matches the partisan lean of the state) is 98.
