The proposed amendment is one of four election-related proposals on the Nov. 8 ballot supported by Reform Ohio Now, a coalition dominated by Democrats, labor and good-government groups.
The amendments include one that would change how Ohio draws state legislative and U.S. House districts and, in a related development Wednesday, Reform Ohio held a press conference with supporters of Californians for Fair Redistricting.
A redistricting proposal also is on the California ballot, but in California, Republicans, who are in the minority, are leading the campaign.
In Ohio, a Republican-led group, Ohio First Voter Education Fund, opposes the four ballot issues.
It just goes to show you that the party in power will oppose whatever threatens that power.
