The U.S. District Court in Cincinnati says Ohio’s congressional district map is unconstitutional. The court is telling Ohio lawmakers to draw a constitutional map by June 14 and if that doesn’t happen, the court will appoint a special master to do it so a new map would be in place for next year’s congressional election.

For the first time, the Secretary of State will send voter registration forms to hundreds of thousands of Ohioans who were removed from the voting rolls for not voting or updating their addresses with county boards of elections. And while it’s not expected many will be filled out and returned, one voting rights group says it’s a positive move.

Voter registrations are up in Ohio since November 2016. And that pleases a non-partisan group that encourages increased voter participation.
