Poll Shows Voters Want Nonpartisan Redistricting

Buckeye State voters overwhelmingly think legislative districts should be drawn in a nonpartisan or at least bipartisan matter.

More than 80 percent of voters recently told University of Akron pollsters that would be their preference, the Dayton Daily News reported last week.

The problem is, those same voters trounced a 2005 proposal to create an independent five-person commission to draw both Congressional and legislative districts.

Republicans in the state House hope to get a redistricting proposal on the 2008 ballot. It would create an independent, seven-member commission to draw all the district lines.
