The Ohio Apportionment Board brought its statewide tour to Akron today, hoping to get input on possible changes in State House and Senate boundaries.
State auditor David Yost is vice-chair of the state board. and was present in Akron.
He explains why boundary changes are needed...and why they're looking for input from the public...
"We're here to give folks a chance to tell us what they feel about reapportionment," Yost tells AkronNewsNow.com, "that's the drawing of new lines for state representatives and state senators after the new census."
The stop at the University of Akron's Martin Center, one of 11 statewide this week, was sparsely attended.
The three who testified say they want to make sure counties are held together in the state House, and not split apart or combined with other counties.
Any changes will be adopted by early October.
