Ohio Election Day Voter Guide

What's on the ballot, where to vote, polling hours

Ohioans voting in the Nov. 7 general election will decide on two statewide issues: the right to abortion access and the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Ohio's Issue 1 puts the debate about abortion rights into the hands of Ohio voters. If passed, Issue 1 would "establish an individual right to one's own reproductive medical treatment, including but not limited to abortion." The ballot initiative comes after the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year and individual states were given the opportunity to decide their own laws on the matter.

Issue 2 in Ohio will determine whether recreational marijuana will be legalized. The measure, spearheaded by the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, would allow adults 21 and over to buy and possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower and 15 grams of extract. If passed, Ohio would become the 24th state to legalize cannabis for adult use.
