LWV OHIO stance on Issue 1 in the

November 2018 General Election

 LWV Ohio has a long-standing position that the Ohio Constitution should be a "clearly stated body of fundamental principles," and we have opposed other initiative amendments on the basis of that position.  The LWV Ohio supports the goals of reforming drug sentencing and improving treatment alternatives, but remains neutral on Issue 1 because we do not believe those goals are best achieved by amending the Constitution. Additionally, the directives contained in Issue 1 are too specific, and the implementation of those directives could lead to unintended negative consequences.



After years of hard work by the League of Women Voters and other groups, fair districts is a reality in the state of Ohio both at the state level and the national level.   New maps will be drawn after the 2020 census. Thank you for your vote on Issue One in May that made fair districts a reality.
