Marysvilles Prison-based gerrymandering

Prison-based gerrymandering violates the constitutional principle of "One Person, One Vote." The Supreme Court requires districts to be based on equal population in order to give each resident the same access to government. But a longstanding flaw in the Census counts incarcerated people as residents of the prison location, even though they can’t vote and aren’t a part of the surrounding community.

Ohio law says a prison cell is not a residence:
•Under Ohio law, a person resides “where he has his true, fixed, permanent home and principal establishment, and to which, whenever he is absent, he has the intention of returning.… It is not, however, necessary, that he should intend to remain there for all time. If he lives in a place, with the intention of remaining for an indefinite period of time, as a place of fixed present domicile, and not as a place of temporary establishment, or for mere transient objects, it is to all intents, and for all purposes, his residence…”

The 2000 Census In the city of Marysville Ward 3 was 55% prisoners.

•All Ohio municipalities that contain prisons should adopt similar solutions to the city of Lima, which already bases its districts on actual, not prison populations.

The Census Bureau counts incarcerated people as residents of
the prison, but people in prison can’t vote and are not residents
of the surrounding community. The practice of including prisons
in local districting plans leads to serious distortions of political
power in county governments.

In Marysville, ward 3 is 55% prisoners, giving 5 people in that
ward more say in city government than 10 people in any other
ward of the city.

“There are many ways to hijack political power. One of them is to draw state or city legislative districts around large prisons — and pretend that the inmates are legitimate constituents.”—Brent Staples

Called prison gerrymandering, the practice finds its clearest example in Anamosa, Iowa where a large prison was almost an entire city council district. Council districts are supposed to contain the same number of people, but basing districts on non-voting non-resident prison populations gives a handful of residents the same political power as thousands of residents elsewhere in the city.
