Ohio Congressional Redistricting Challenge (LWVO II)

League of Women Voters of Ohio v. LaRose

Lawsuit filed on behalf of the League of Women Voters of Ohio and multiple voters challenging Ohio’s second congressional map passed after the first map was struck down by the Ohio Supreme Court. The same group of plaintiffs sued over the first map. The plaintiffs allege that the new map “cracks” Democratic voters from multiple counties in order to make the 1st and 15th Congressional Districts more Republican in violation of the Ohio Constitution. The lawsuit asks the court to declare the challenged districts invalid and order the creation of new districts in time for the 2024 election cycle. Litigation is ongoing.
