On August 8, Ohioans will go to the polls to vote on Issue 1 – a constitutional amendment that would make it all but impossible for citizens to put initiatives on the ballot in the future. Don’t be fooled into giving away your rights and power – vote against Issue 1!
Since 1912, Ohioans have had the right to bring issues to the ballot and have a direct say in our government — but today, that right is in jeopardy. Out-of-state special interests lobbied to create this August 8th special election, just so they can permanently rig Ohio’s constitution in their favor, ending majority rule as we know it. It would destroy the sacred principle of “one person one vote” by allowing a small group of voters to make decisions for everyone else. It’s a special election for special interests.
We all want the freedom to make decisions that affect our lives. But politicians and special interests don’t like the decisions we’ve made, and unless we vote NO on August 8th they will rewrite the rules to give themselves even more power.
