Tausanovitch talked about gerrymandering and how it has become a big problem in Ohio. With this being such a prominent problem in Ohio, he said that districts political party interests are not being represented as accurately as they should be. Tausanovitch then discussed how all states do not have their political parties draw the districts and that some will have a neutral third party do it for them so that there is no gerrymandering or unfairness. He said that there is a push for an independent commission to draw the districts for states using statistical evidence for their reasoning to be as thorough and fair as possible.
