The Ohio Supreme Court struck down the state's congressional map once again Tuesday in a 4-3 decision. 

The court rejected the Republican-drawn 15-district congressional map and ordered lawmakers to redraw a new map that complies with the court order. However, the ruling will not impact the previous primary nor the Aug. 2 election, as the court ordered the new districts drawn for the 2024 elections.

The order stated " General Assembly must pass a new congressional-district plan that complies with the Ohio Constitution within 30 days. If the General Assembly fails to do so, Article XIX, Section 3(B)(2) will require the Ohio Redistricting Commission
to adopt a constitutional plan within 30 days of the General Assembly’s failure. Costs assessed to respondents."

The decision marks the fourth time the maps have been rejected by the court. The need for an Aug. 2 primary for House and Senate was created after the map was not drawn in time for the May primary.
