VOTE NO ON ISSUE 1 AUGUST 8

WE WON!!!

ISSUE 1 on the August 8 ballot is an attempt by the Republican Legislature to make it much harder, if not impossible, for citizen-led ballot initiatives to change the Ohio Constitution, a right Ohioans have had since 1912. If it passes:

  • It will increase the threshold for passage of a ballot amendment to 60% from a simple majority vote.

  • It will increase the burden of signature gathering to a nearly impossible level.

  • It will eliminate the so-called "cure period", which gives ballot initiative groups ten days to get additional signatures should their initial efforts fall short.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

If the Reproductive Freedom Amendment makes it on the Fall Ballot, this means that 41% of voters can determine whether Ohioans have a right to make their own reproductive choices. And any future ballot initiative, such as Fair Districts, will have an almost impossible hill to climb to make it to the ballot.
