Members of the Ohio Senate Government Oversight Committee hear testimony on a new map of state congressional districts on Nov. 16, 2021, at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus, Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court will take yet another look at the legality of the state's congressional districts after the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, June 30, 2023, set aside a ruling striking down the districts and ordered further consideration of the case.

This episode originally aired on Oct. 4, 2023.

Ohio’s legislative and congressional district lines are considered some of the most gerrymandered in the nation, meaning they are fixed to benefit one political party over the other.

Ohio’s districts for both the state's House of Representatives and Senate have been set for the next decade.

What was different this time around was bipartisan support for the plan.

We’ll discuss what’s next for Ohio voters.
