Ohioans to Vote on Whether Non-citizens Can Vote in Local Elections
Issue 2 would prohibit a person to vote in local Ohio elections
On Nov. 8, 2022, Ohio voters will vote on whether to approve Issue 2, an amendment to the state Constitution that would prohibit a person to vote in local elections if they are not a United States citizen.
The proposal would change the language in the Ohio Constitution so that “only a citizen of the United States” can vote at any state or local election held in the state. It also reads that local governments would be prohibited “from allowing a person to vote in local elections if they are not legally qualified to vote in state elections.”
Currently, the Ohio Constitution allows every U.S. citizen to vote if they meet specific qualifications.
