A Message from Jon Husted, Ohio Secretary of State

For the upcoming November 3, 2015 General Election, Ohio voters will decide a number of local issues and races. Ohioans will also have the chance to vote on three statewide ballot issues:

  • Issue 1 – Proposed Constitutional Amendment: Creates a bipartisan, public process for drawing legislative districts.
  • Issue 2– Proposed Constitutional Amendment: Anti-monopoly amendment; protects the initiative process from being used for personal economic benefit.
  • Issue 3 – Proposed Constitutional Amendment: Grants a monopoly for the commercial production and sale of marijuana for recreational and medicinal purposes.

In order to ensure that information about these important issues is available to all Ohio voters, Mr. Husted is directing interested voters to view the 2015 State Issues Report on the Ohio Secretary of State website. This website includes the official ballot language, explanation, arguments for and against, and the full text of the issues. The website can be found at www.OhioSecretaryofState.gov (click on the โ€œKnow the Statewide Issuesโ€ button on the bottom of the home page). This website is also a resource for information on absentee voting, voting early in person, and Election Day procedures.
