A state panel has set the language that will appear before voters for the upcoming Aug. 8 election when they’re asked to make it harder to change the Ohio constitution.
The Ohio Ballot Board, chaired by Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose, also voted Thursday to give the proposal its official ballot name, State Issue 1.
In a party-line vote, the majority Republican panel voted 3-2 to adopt the language, along with accompanying language summarizing the measure. Republicans rejected proposed changes from a lawyer for One Person One Vote, the campaign group opposing State Issue 1, that would more explicitly describe the status quo that voters are being asked to change.
And from the Cincinnati Enquirer, “Dems object to ballot language for August issue to make it harder to amend constitution.”
