Husted Release Ballot Issue Order

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio's elections chief says the first of three statewide issues listed on the November ballot will be about whether to raise the age limit for judges.

Secretary of State Jon Husted says Issue 2 will be whether to keep Ohio's new law limiting collective bargaining rights for public workers. The third issue will let Ohioans vote on whether they want to participate in the national health care overhaul.

Husted released the ballot order today and said it is based on the order in which the issues were filed with his office. He has the legal power to determine the ballot order.

The board that approves the language that will appear on the ballots is scheduled to meet next week.
