An Attempt to Disempower Ohio Voters
American Constitution Society Expert Forum blog
Ohio Constitution, State Issue 1, special election, amendments
The effort behind State Issue 1 has an “under the cover of darkness” cynicism to it, from the substance proposed to the timing of the election. We will soon know whether such cynicism succeeds. Regardless, we hope the lesson that other states take from this is to respect their processes and to ensure that proposals for changing how their state constitutions are amended are transparently taken up and every effort is made to ensure the final result reflects the will of the people.
