COLUMBUS – State Rep. Michele Grim (D-Toledo) yesterday praised the citizens of Ohio for their overwhelming support in defeating Issue 1 during the August 8th Special Election.

“The citizens of Ohio have made their voices heard with the defeat of Issue 1. The Ohio Constitution and democratic principles have been upheld with this special election, thanks to the hard work of citizens across Ohio who showed up for our state. Thank you. We must continue to stand together and fight for our democracy.” said Rep. Grim.

The defeat of Issue 1 is a significant victory for safeguarding Ohio’s democratic process while respecting the diverse opinions of its citizens. It ensures that future constitutional changes will reflect the majority’s will and uphold the principle of “one person, one vote.”

House Democrats will continue to put people first and uphold the democratic values that make Ohio a beacon of freedom, dignity, and opportunity.
