Most Ohioans believe in the idea of political representation chosen through fair and just elections. After all, the right to vote is one of our most fundamental rights as Americans.

However, some in office who have a completely different set of values. Is it at all ethical to redraw congressional boundaries, so that representation of one political party will outnumber the other by 3 to 1?

How equitable is it that Ohio legislators recently passed House Bill 194, a law that reduces early and absentee voting of its citizens? Is it fair that many votes by Ohioans will be invalidated, because poll workers will not be required to redirect people who show up at the wrong polling locations?

Whatever happened to honest elections that were decided by the will of the majority?
