In August, the people of Ohio will make decisions that determine our future.

REQUEST AN ABSENTEE BALLOT TO VOTE BY MAIL
Any registered Ohio voter can vote by mail with absentee ballot by filling out an application to do so by August 1. After submitting an application, voters will receive their absentee ballot in the mail. You can vote by mail using the last 4 digits of your Social Security — you do not need a photo ID. The absentee ballot must be postmarked by August 7 or returned in person to the county Board of Elections by 7:30pm on August 8.
VOTE IN PERSON — EARLY STARTING JULY 11 OR ON ELECTION DAY AUGUST 8
Early voting begins July 11 at each county's early vote location. Polls are open on Election Day August 8 from 6:30am to 7:30pm. In order to vote in person, you MUST have a valid photo ID (Ohio Driver's License or State ID, U.S. Passport, U.S. or County Military Card).
WHAT IS ISSUE 1?
Issue 1 will appear on the August 8, 2023 ballot. It will ask voters to change current law so that amendments to the Ohio Constitution will be required to be approved by voters by a 60% supermajority of voters, rather than simple majority that has been Ohio law for over 100 years.
Issue 1 would shred our Constitution, end majority rule in Ohio, and take away your right to decide what happens here by undermining the sacred principle of ‘one person, one vote.’
This is a special election for special interests. We must protect our freedom to determine our future in Ohio, not permanently change our constitution to give up our rights.
