Ohio Election Reform

Great work is being done in Ohio to reform the election system there and start to recover the state from the hopelessly corrupt Republican party. Check out the link at MyDD as well as the following:

A number of reforms are on the ballot this November, reforms aimed at making the electoral system more transparent and more representative. One of the main amendments is to place the drawing of congressional districts into the hands of an independent board. This will remove the job of drawing districts from the state legislature and reduce the degree of gerrymandering that has become so absurd.
