State Rep. Paula Hicks-Hudson (D-Toledo) issued a statement on yesterday’s Ohio Supreme Court decision in which the court determined that the Ballot Board violated the law when it split a voting rights ballot issue into four separate parts.
“I take it very seriously when people play games with our voting rights and I applaud the court for setting things right,” said Rep. Hicks-Hudson. “This decision is a vindication of the arguments my colleague and I made at the Ballot Board meeting that the issue presented was a single cohesive issue having to do with protecting and enhancing Ohio voters’ rights. I look forward to the next Board meeting to certify the issue as the court has ordered.”
The court’s 6-1 decision can be found here. The Ballot Board must meet within the next week to certify the measure as one issue.
