Redrawing Districts in Ohio

Play

2011 is the year for redistricting.

Congressional and legislative districts  will be redrawn as a result of the 2010 National Census.  In Ohio, two congressional districts will be lost because of a drop in population.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher we look at what shapes the districts could take  for current congressional seats…What does it mean for the voters in Ohio when  Republicans hold a congressional seat advantage over Democrats – 13 to 5?  Will that advantage increase as districts are redrawn?  We’ll find out…
