Ohio Constitution http://wyso.org en Ohioans Reject Chance to Convene on Constitution http://wyso.org/post/ohioans-reject-chance-convene-constitution <p>For the fifth time in 100 years, Ohioans have rejected the chance to revisit Ohio's Constitution.</p><p>Such a forum would have allowed debate on issues such as redistricting, term limits, casino gambling and gay marriage. Instead, voters rejected Issue 1 in Tuesday's election by strong margins in every county.</p><p>Under state law, the question of calling a constitutional convention must be presented to voters every 20 years. Voters in an era of renewed interest in constitutional issues were thought to perhaps have more interest in a gathering to revise the founding document.</p> Wed, 07 Nov 2012 09:50:00 +0000 Associated Press 24723 at http://wyso.org
