The Voters First amendment ensures every Ohio voter's right to fair, competitive elections by replacing the current system - where politicians draw their own legislative and congressional districts - with an independent, non-partisan, citizen's commission that will draw districts out in the open for everyone to see. Politicians, lobbyists and political insiders are not permitted to serve on the commission.
The petition submission on July 3rd includes signatures of more than 430,000 registered voters, which means Voters First has met the mandated requirement of collecting at least 385,253 signatures from half (44) of Ohio's 88 counties. In fact, they met the threshold in over 50 counties. But during the Ohio Secretary of State's verification period, Voters First still wants to get as many signatures as possible. So please continue to do the great work out in the field that has made this effort possible!
