Ohio's congressional districts since 2013[1]

Ohio is divided into 16 congressional districts, each represented by a member of the United States House of Representatives. After the 2010 Census, Ohio lost two House seats due to slow population growth compared to the national average,[2] and a new map was signed into law on September 26, 2011. This map has been ruled unconstitutional due to "partisan gerrymandering" and must be redrawn before June 14, 2019.[3]

Current districts and representatives[edit]

On May 3, 2019, a three-judge panel from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio declared the Ohio's 2012 district map contrary to Article One of the United States Constitution, as "an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander" and ordered "the enactment of a constitutionally viable replacement" prior to the 2020 presidential election. Appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, "currently deliberating challenges to congressional maps from Maryland and North Carolina", is expected.[4]
