Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose introduced Tuesday that organizers submitted sufficient legitimate signatures to place an amendment on the November poll to enshrine abortion rights within the state’s structure.
“I hereby certify that petitioners submitted 495,938 complete legitimate signatures on behalf of the proposed statewide initiative,” LaRose wrote in a letter to petitioners, clearing the hurdle of roughly 414,000 signatures required to be positioned on the poll this fall.
The proposed modification in Ohio would guarantee “each particular person has a proper to make and perform one’s reproductive selections.” The statewide vote would come a 12 months after two of Ohio’s neighboring states – deep-red Kentucky and the political battleground of Michigan – supported abortion rights in their very own poll measures.
Forward of the November election, Ohio voters face one other key vote: an August 8 particular election set by the Republican-controlled legislature, through which voters will determine whether or not to boost the brink for amending the state structure from the present easy majority to 60%.
