Fedor Encourages Ohioans To Participate in Redistricting Process
August 23, 2021
Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) is urged Ohioans to participate in the upcoming regional public hearings recently announced by the Ohio Redistricting Commission. The Commission is responsible for drawing legislative maps and may also have a role in the drawing of congressional maps.  

"I encourage all people from Toledo, regardless of their political affiliation, to attend or participate in one of the many public redistricting hearings that will be taking place throughout the state to share their thoughts and continue to stay informed throughout this process,” Fedor said. “We all deserve the power to vote politicians out of office when necessary. We all deserve the power to elect new, diverse, leadership that truly represent us. Redistricting impacts everyone, and every Ohioan would benefit from fair, representative districts.”

The hearings, which will take place throughout the state from Monday, August 23 through Friday, August 27, will provide Ohioans the opportunity to protect the future of Ohio's state legislative districts by offering public testimony and submitting map proposals.

The hearings will take place on the following days:
