General Assembly Districts

Under the Ohio Constitution, the Ohio Apportionment Board is responsible for adopting maps for Ohio’s 99 Ohio House Districts and 33 Ohio Senate Districts. Unlike the process for drawing Congressional lines, the number of districts will remain the same, and the Ohio Constitution is relatively prescriptive in how those seats should be configured.  For example, Ohio Senate Districts are comprised of three contiguous House Districts and there are clear guidelines for wholly-containing districts within one county if that county meets certain population thresholds. Please see General Guidelines for more information. 

Based on current census data, Ohio House districts will be comprised of 116,530 individuals and Ohio Senate Districts will be comprised of 349,591 individuals. 

The Ohio Apportionment Board, which consists of the Governor, the Auditor of State, the Secretary of State and two members of the Ohio General Assembly, including one from each major political party, must have the new districts in place by October 5, 2011 per the Ohio Constitution.
