Ohio Redistricting Transparency Report:The Elephant in the Room (December 2011)

In December 2011, the Ohio Campaign for Accountable Redistricting (OCAR) published the "Ohio Redistricting Transparency Report: The Elephant in the Room," a report that evaluates and documents the level
of transparency used in the redistricting process. OCAR concluded that those responsible for Ohio’s 2011 redistricting process deserve a grade of D minus. 
OCAR involved 25 Ohio organizations and was established through a partnership led by the League of Women Voters of Ohio Education Fund, Ohio Citizen Action and the Midwest Democracy Network, with funding provided by the Joyce Foundation.
