Freedom to marry will be single ballot issue

Gay marriage ruling in Ohio

COLUMBUS – The Ohio Ballot Board, chaired by Secretary of State Jon Husted, today certified that a proposed Freedom to Marry constitutional amendment consists of one issue.

Petitioners will now need to collect 385,247 signatures, which is equal to 10 percent of the total vote cast for governor in 2010. As part of the total number of signatures needed to place the measure on the ballot, petitioners must also have collected signatures from at least 44 of Ohio’s 88 counties, and within each of those counties, collect enough signatures equal to five percent of the total vote cast for governor in the most recent gubernatorial election, 2010.
