LaRose Statement on Supreme Court Ruling of Congressional Redistricting

COLUMBUS - Today, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose issued a statement on the Supreme Court Ruling of Congressional Redistricting:

This quote is attributable to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose:

"It's up to the people of Ohio to determine how congressional lines are drawn, not a handful of unelected judges, and that's exactly what Ohio did last year when they overwhelmingly approved our redistricting reform initiative. Thanks to that effort, soon Republicans and Democrats will begin working for the first time as true partners in the effort to fairly draw congressional districts. As Ohio’s chief elections officer, I’m certainly appreciative of the Supreme Court’s affirmation of federalism and the separation of powers, and I look forward to continuing to work with our county boards of elections to administer fair, accurate and secure elections across our great state."
