Ohioans to get more details on redistricting issue



Published: Thu, September 13, 2012 @ 3:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio voters will see an expanded description of a proposed redistricting amendment on fall ballots, but the issue’s backers say the language is still cumbersome.

The Ohio Ballot Board agreed in a party-line vote today to new ballot language for Issue 2. The vote came a day after the panel was scolded by the state Supreme Court for approving earlier language that was incomplete and inaccurate.

At today’s emergency meeting, Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office proposed as a starting point new language that added paragraphs of exact phrasing from the lengthy amendment, which he and others in his party have criticized as convoluted.

Democrats and Voters First, the group behind the proposal, said a more concise, clear summary was possible.

“What we’re struggling with on our side is we don’t want to swap misleading for confusing,” said Democratic board member Fred Strahorn.

Husted said any summary risked not pleasing the court and delaying distribution of ballots in the key battleground state.

If you want to understand Issue 2, read this ballot language submitted by Voters First to the Ohio Ballot Board. http://votersfirstohio.com/author/staff/ It’s accurate and understandable. Share it with all the voters you know to remove the intentional fog opponents are creating. Speak out against politicians who try to rig elections.
