Keeping you updated on Issue 1 and 2

October 31, 2023

As Ohioans gear up for the November 7 election, two critical ballot issues - Issue 1 (abortion rights) and Issue 2 (legalization of recreational marijuana) - are at the forefront of public discussion. Understanding these issues is crucial, and Voteable is your go-to platform for staying updated and making an informed decision.

Keeping Track of Issue 1: Abortion Rights

Celeste Houmard's FOX 8 article, "Poll: Where Ohioans stand on Issue 1 and 2," highlights a recent Baldwin Wallace University poll. This poll shows 58% of likely Ohio voters favor passing Issue 1, which aims to protect abortion rights, including access to contraception, fertility treatment, pregnancy continuation, miscarriage care, and abortion services. With the majorities across different political affiliations supporting Issue 1, Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb noted, “A recent polling has shown that a majority of Ohioans believe that the language in the amendment speaks to a common sense approach to making sure we protect a woman’s right to choose.”

Through Voteable, you'll get timely updates, news about these topics, and clear explanations of what Issue 1 entails. Understanding the nuances and the public sentiment on this matter can help you see the broader social and political context of this ballot issue.

Staying Informed on Issue 2: Legalization of Recreational Marijuana

Similarly, Issue 2, regarding the legalization of recreational marijuana, has shown significant public support, with 57% of voters indicating a yes vote. As Houmard notes, "66% of Democrats, 50% of Republicans, and 59% of independents plan to vote yes on Issue 2." Voteable ensures you are not only aware of these numbers but also helps in providing insights into what this change means for Ohioans, the potential impacts, and how it aligns with or differs from national trends.
