Ohio attorney general rejects voting-rights coalition’s ballot petition for a 2nd time

February 16, 2024

A coalition of voting-rights groups is vowing to fight on after Ohio Republican Attorney General Dave Yost issued his second rejection Thursday of petition language it has submitted for a proposed constitutional amendment. Yost found the amendment's title — “Ohio Voters Bill of Rights” — was “highly misleading and misrepresentative” of the measure's contents, even as he acknowledged that his office had previously certified identical language. It certified a Nursing Facility Patients’ Bill of Rights in 2021 and another Ohio Voters Bill of Rights in 2014.
