There are three ballot measures we’re keeping a close eye on in Ohio.

  • Issue one: Creates a bipartisan, public process for drawing legislative districts.
    • Would require a bipartisan majority vote of four members to adopt the new district lines.
  • Issue two: Anti-monopoly amendment; protects the initiative process from being used for personal economic benefit.
  • Issue three: Grants a monopoly for the commercial production and sale of marijuana for recreational and medicinal purposes.

Many voters are still unsure about the wording of Issues 2 and 3.

Here is a break down of the most likely scenarios. 

1.) I want marijuana legalized.
            Vote “No” on 2 and “Yes” on 3.
                        Voting “No” on Issue 2 means you do not want to prohibit a monopoly.
                        Voting “Yes” on Issue 3 means you want to legalize marijuana

2.) I do not want marijuana legalized.
           
Vote “Yes” on 2 and “No” on 3.
                        Voting “Yes” on Issue 2 means you want to prohibit a monopoly
                        Voting “No” on Issue 3 means you do not want to legalize marijuana

3.) I want marijuana legalized, and I want to prohibit economic monopolies.
           
Vote “Yes” on 2 and “Yes” on 3.
                        Voting “Yes” on Issue 2 means you want to prohibit a monopoly.
                        Voting “Yes” on Issue 3 means you want to legalize marijuana

4.) I do not want marijuana legalized, and I do not want to prohibit a monopoly.
           
Vote “No” on 2 and “No” on 3.
                        Voting “No” on Issue 2 means you do not want to prohibit a monopoly
                        Voting “No” on Issue 3 means you do not want to legalize marijuana

Polls in Ohio are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m..
