Don't Let Them Silence You
When and Where to vote?
What is the August Special Election about?
Voting “Yes” on Issue 1 would require 60% of the vote, up from a simple majority of 50%, to amend Ohio’s constitution. It would also make it harder to collect signatures to place citizen-initiated amendments before voters and would eliminate a 10-day period of time in which signatures can be corrected. This will make it significantly harder, if not impossible, for Ohioans to make their voices heard.
Voting “No” on Issue 1 would not change the Ohio Constitution. Future citizen or legislative-initiated amendments would need the support of a simple majority (50%+1) of voters in order to pass, the same as it works today. Petitioners would still be required to collect signatures in 44 of 88 Ohio counties.
Vote "No" on Issue 1 will protect direct democracy and majority rule. Ohioans must have a voice on reproductive freedom, minimum wage, voting rights, and fair districts. Don't let them silence you!
