Ohio 2022 Primary Election Status
2022 Ohio Primary Update
On March 16, 2022, the Supreme Court of Ohio invalidated the Ohio General Assembly district plan adopted on February 24, 2022. Voter district information for Ohio House, Ohio Senate, and State Central Committee will be updated as soon as that information is available.

Ohio’s Primary Election is at risk, causing confusion and possible delays.  Liberals are attempting to override the laws set forth for the districting and election process.  Congressional & State districts are yet to be determined placing candidate petitions in danger.  Ohio’s election is less than 2 months away! 

In 2015 the citizens of Ohio passed an amendment to the Ohio State Constitution, as an anti-gerrymandering reform. This amendment outlining the rules for redistricting is contained in this Article XI | General Assembly Redistricting Law. Then in 2018, an amendment was passed Article XIX | Congressional Redistricting that further governed state redistricting.

Using these Constitutional Articles, the Ohio State Supreme Court has denied the latest redistricting maps by a vote of 4 to 3 with Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor, crossing the aisle once again to side with her Democratic colleagues. This opinion can be found here Adams v. DeWine (Slip Opinion) (ohio.gov).

During this election cycle process, the Supreme Court has thrown out 2 sets of legislative maps and 1 congressional map. The result of this protracted redistricting process has put in jeopardy the May 3rd primary election. This has prompted Ohio Secretary of State, Frank LaRose to warn that there may be significant problems if the primary election isn’t moved due to prolonged litigation challenging the state legislative and congressional lines.

At this point, there is no real solution. However, the Redistricting Commission just passed a new set of House and Senate maps along party lines. Next on the agenda is a map for Ohio’s 15 congressional districts. However, all these maps will have to meet the Ohio Supreme Court’s interpretation of redistricting rules. Meanwhile, Democratic organizations like the League of Women Voters and The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, lead by former Obama U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, in collaboration with several liberal groups, continue to suggest workarounds to the Ohio Supreme Court to bypass Ohio’s Redistricting Commission (The Panel of elected officials drawing the maps).
