In a special statewide election on Tuesday, Aug. 8, Ohio voters will vote on a single ballot item: Issue 1, which aims to elevate the standards to pass and qualify for a citizen-initiated constitutional amendment for the state.

If passed, Issue 1 would not only raise the threshold for passing future amendments from a simple majority to 60%, but it would also require citizens to hit signature quotas in all 88 Ohio counties before the amendment could appear on the ballot.
