Proposal to Change Electoral College

From the office of Ohio Attorney General, Dave Yost, we find that there is an attempt to change how Ohio’s Electoral College members may vote in a presidential election.

Summary for Proposed Presidential Election Amendment Certified


(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — The Ohio Attorney General’s Office today certified a summary of a petition for a proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution. The proposed amendment would change the way Ohio’s Electoral College members vote in presidential elections. An alternative summary for the same proposed amendment was rejected. (emphasis added by LFC)

The attorney general’s role is to determine whether the summary is a fair and truthful representation of the proposed constitutional amendment. Petitioners have submitted two petitions with different summaries, each supported with the requisite 1,000 valid signatures from registered Ohio voters. This is an unusual tactic, and perhaps the first time it has been used.

“Both summaries accurately restated the proposed amendment; but only the first is both fair and truthful,” said Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost. “The second summary fails to note the most important piece of information for the voter: that the amendment, if adopted, could require Ohio’s representatives in the Electoral College to vote for the winner of the national presidential popular vote rather than for the winner of Ohio’s presidential popular vote.”

The first summary is certified; the second is not.

Once the summary language is certified by the attorney general’s office and the initial signatures are verified by the county boards of elections, the Ohio Ballot Board must determine if the amendment contains a single issue or multiple issues. The petitioners must then collect signatures for each issue from registered voters in each of 44 of Ohio’s 88 counties, equal to 5 percent of the total vote cast in the county for the office of governor at the last gubernatorial election. Total signatures collected statewide must also equal 10 percent of the total vote cast for the office of governor at the last gubernatorial election.

(LFC Comments: It never ceases to amaze us how the leftists want to change the rules in order for them to have a better chance of winning an election.  Our position on this is simple – just like the second amendment, stay away from the Electoral College.  It has worked amazing well for over 200 years.)

  19. I just heard Kamala Harris say that slowly but surely people we come around to the idea that socialism is the answer. These communists may have to be “shown the door”, but Americans are far too trusting, and many far too clueless to the deceptions being played on them.

  20. I had heard that this sort of thing was occurring in “blue” states but not here until now. In a state that elects Sherrod Brown as its US Senator multiple times, there is no certainty that this initiative won’t pass. And if it does, that is another nail in the coffin of the United States as founded.

  21. with you all the way on this one Mr. Denney….

  22. Does anyone know of a real, organized campaign to stop this? And where the proponents’ money is coming from?

  23. This must be stopped.
