OH Supreme Court Won’t Review Congressional Map Until After May 3 Primary

The Ohio Supreme Court, won’t decide whether a Republican-crafted Congressional District Map, Violates Anti-Gerrymandering Rules, in the Ohio Constitution, until after the May 3rd Primary.

The Court, which struck Down a previous Congressional Map, set a Schedule Tuesday, for Reviewing the One passed by Republicans on the Ohio Redistricting Commission in early March.

The 62-day window extends into Late May, weeks after the Primary is scheduled. That means the Map will likely appear on Ohio Voters’ May 3rd Primary Ballots.

This Map includes 10 Republican-leaning Districts, Three Democratic-leaning Districts, and Two tossups in Cincinnati and Toledo.

Republicans could win the Akron-based Democratic District in a Competitive year.

The only Question is whether a Trio of Federal Judges will move the Entire Primary, to accommodate State House and Senate Districts, which won’t make the Ballot.

Ohio Secretary of State, Frank LaRose (R), in a Monday Filing, said the Judges could move the Primary for those Races to May 24th, at the earliest, and Aug. 2nd at the Latest.
