WARREN COUNTY, OH -- Along with voting on candidates to fill all the open political seats at the State level, there are two proposed amendments for the Ohio State Constitution that
are on the November 8th ballot.

They are the Bail Reform Amendment and the Qualifications of Electors Amendment, both of which were proposed by The Joint Resolution of the General Assembly, and if passed would go into effect immediately.

Issue 1

Bail Reform Amendment

This would amend Section 9 of Article I of the Constitution of the State of Ohio. The proposed amendment would:

  • Require Ohio Courts, when setting the amount of bail, to consider public safety, including the seriousness of the offense, as well as a person's criminal record, the likelihood a person will return to court, and any other factor the Ohio General Assembly may prescribe.
  • Remove, the requirement that the procedures for establishing the amount and conditiions of bail be determined by the Supreme Court of Ohio.

A majority yes vote is need for the amendment to pass.

    Issue 2

    Qualifications of Electors Amendment

    This would prohibit local governments from allowing non- electors to vote. It would amend Section I of Article 4, Section 3 of Article X , and Section 3 of Article XVIII of the Constitution for the State of Ohio. The proposed amendment would:

    • Require that only a citizen of the United States, who is at least 18 years of age and who has been a legal resident and registered voter for at least 30 days, can vote at any state or local election held in this state.
    • Prohibit local governments from allowing a person to vote in local elections if they are not legally qualified to vote in state elections.

    A majority yes vote is need for the amendment to pass.
