Watch: What does Redistricting have to do with me?

Cincinnati, Ohio - CUFA hosted Common Cause Ohio Executive Director Catherine Turcer and Fair Districts Ohio Speakers' Bureau member Christine Carli of the League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area to discuss this year's redistricting. Ohio voters overwhelmingly approved two ballot issues to change the way our state and congressional districts are drawn. This year, Ohio redraws the lines. How do the ballot issues change the process for mapping Ohio's districts? How might it impact our votes? Learn more and discuss redistricting in this CUFA Popular Education event.
