COLUMBUS – The Ohio House of Representatives today unanimously passed House Bill 271, a bill to end repeat ballot initiative numbering. Led by State Representatives Adam Mathews (R-Lebanon) and Bob Peterson (R-Sabina), the bill will bring clarity and transparency to statewide ballot initiatives in Ohio. 

The legislation clarifies that for elections occurring after November 2024, statewide ballot issues will be designated by the Arabic numeral consecutive to that of the last statewide ballot issue in the immediately preceding election. For example, for two consecutive elections on different dates including a statewide ballot issue, the first election will contain Issue 1, the next election will contain Issue 2, and so on. The ballot issue number will reset after 500 ensuring sufficient time before the same numbers appear again on the ballot.
