What district am I in? And who is on the ballot in my district? These are questions that we get in the weeks leading up to the November elections. Our staff literally answers hundreds of calls from fellow Ohioans calling the offices of Ohio Christian Alliance to find out information on polling locations, congressional and state districts, and ballot issues.
After the Census of 2010, Ohio lost 2 Congressional seats as a result. We went from 20 Electoral College votes to 18, and from 18 Congressional districts to 16. Last year, the Ohio Legislature worked on the redraw of Ohio's Congressional and Ohio House and Ohio Senate Districts. As a result, new maps were created as new district lines were drawn.
Here are some helpful links and information to answer some of the basic questions that many people have concerning the new Congressional districts and the new Ohio House and Senate districts. The Ohio Christian Alliance will also feature a special area on our website throughout the election season to help you with finding your Congressional and state districts.
Check back often to our website at www.ohioca.org for new information, including information about the Ohio Christian Alliance VOTER GUIDE that will be featured on our website beginning in early October. A printed version of the voter guide will also be available for distribution to local churches in all 88 counties.
The Secretary of State has provided a link to a 66-page report detailing the newly drawn districts and what cities, towns, and townships reside in those districts. Click on this link to view and download the PDF report!
