COLUMBUS, Ohio: A proposed redistricting measure is one step closer to being certified for the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot. On May 27 the House voted 69-28 in favor of referring the measure to the ballot. The amendment is now pending in the Senate.[1] In order to place the measure on the May ballot, the proposal requires support from at least 60% of members from both the Senate and the House. The legislatively-referred constitutional amendment proposes amending the redistricting process of state legislative districts. According to reports, currently the party that controls two of three statewide offices - governor, auditor and secretary of state - is responsible for drawing the legislative lines. The legislature, however, draws congressional lines.[2]
