Time is Running Out! We Need Your Signature by July 1!

Imagine 10 more years of rigged Republican districts that virtually guarantees Republican one-party rule in Ohio for the next decade. Let that sink in.

That's what the currently redrawn district map virtually guarantees --- one-party Republican rule in Ohio through 2020. It's as simple as this:  unless this redistricting petition gets enough signatures to get on the November ballot, Ohio Republicans will have the upper hand at the state and federal levels. The only recourse to challenge their misguided legislation will be an endless 10 more years of petitions, ballot issues and fund raising for long-shot Democratic candidates.

If you signed a petition last fall, you have not signed this current petition and we need your signature! Click 'Read More' to see where you can sign the petition:
