Ballot Battle Continues In OH

The state of Ohio continues to defend its right to impose normal signature requirements on ballot issue campaigns, amid the global pandemic. Uncertainty over the question prompted a voting-rights campaign to suspend its ballot effort last week, but minimum wage and marijuana decriminalization issues remain. In a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court, Ohio Attorney General, Dave Yost argued that a lower court judge…who had temporarily relaxed the rules…effectively rewrote Ohio’s Constitution and Revised Code. The state also argued that changing signature-gathering rules now would lead to last-minute confusion and the possible wrongful passage of issues this fall.
