Ballot Board Divides Voting Rights Measure

The Ohio Ballot Board Monday voted to split a proposed ballot measure aimed at updating Ohio's voting laws into four separate issues. 

Disappointed backers said they were weighing their options. Advancing four issues, rather than one, involves more signatures and expense. In a 3-2 vote , the board agreed with Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose's recommendation to sever the issues into four. He said the package contained four different points of law. Opponents said Ohio courts have urged the board in past decisions to interpret the state's single subject requirement liberally.
