Ohio Statehouse - Protect Ballot Initiatives

Ohio Statehouse - Protect Ballot Initiatives

**Change of date from Thu 4/27 to Wed 5/3
For more than a century, Ohio's ballot initiative process has been our last resort to pass popular policies when the Statehouse is unrepresentative and unresponsive. Yet politicians in Columbus are getting ready to vote on a constitutional amendment to make ballot measures even harder to pass. As with Ranked Choice Voting, a 40% minority should not overrule a 60% majority, and we need citizen-initiated ballot initiatives to put voters first instead of politicians, parties, or special interests. Rank the Vote Ohio is joining forces with the Ohio Voter Rights Coalition and more than 200  groups across the political spectrum to protect Ohioans' freedom to make decisions through the ballot -- especially because HJR1 would make passing Instant Runoffs even harder.
We will be meeting allied groups at Trinity Episcopal Church by the Statehouse in Columbus. We will wear Rank the Vote Ohio attire and/or carry signs advertising Rank the Vote Ohio and Ranked Choice Voting -- not only so that we can oppose the power grab before the vote, but also so that we can collect signups and make our cause known to all the other groups and media. Can you RSVP below to join us to protect ballot initiatives?
