Ohioans To Tackle Statewide Issues At Polls


UPDATED: Tuesday November 6, 2012 7:12 AM

Every Ohio voter will decide on two key Ohio issues.

Issue 1 asks voters to decide if a convention should be held to change the state constitution. This issue is required to be on the ballot every 20 years. Ohio voters have turned it down each time since the issue first appeared in 1932.

State Issue 2 would create a state-funded commission to draw legislative and congressional districts.

Supporters said that it would make the process of drawing districts more accountable, transparent and balanced so neither party can rig the system to its own advantage.

Those against Issue 2 said that the new board not would be elected, was unaccountable and unacceptable. They said the issue would take power from Ohio voters and give it to a taxpayer funded bureaucratic commission.

Also on ballots statewide Tuesday is one of Ohio’s seats in the United States Senate with Josh Mandel and incumbent Sherrod Brown going head to head. Democrats are fighting to keep control of the U.S. senate.
