WCPO: Ohio Redistricting Commission

UC political scientist speaks to the redistricting process

Prior to a public meeting on Aug. 24, UC political scientist David Niven explained the process and effects of redistricting in an interview with WCPO.

Redistricting in 2021 has some new rules set by voters.  The redistricting commission must try to keep cities and counties in the same district, and Cincinnati is split into several districts.

"That's one of the fundamentally important things about these maps," Niven said. "A well-drawn map, a fairly drawn map gives Cincinnati and other communities a chance to have a voice in the process."
