Time to address gerrymandering in Ohio’s Congressional districts
Signature gathering is off to a successful start!
In the first month of signature gathering, over 100,000 signatures have been collected. More than 2,400 volunteers have collected signatures from all 88 counties in Ohio with eight counties already achieving the qualifying minimum.
To succeed, the campaign must collect a little over 300,000 valid signatures, equal to 10 percent of the statewide gubernatorial vote in 2014, and 5 percent of that vote in a minimum of 44 counties.
So far, only volunteers have been used to collect signatures.
