OH Board Clears Voter Rights Proposal As One Issue
Supporters of a voting rights proposal in Ohio can now gather the needed signatures in their campaign to get it on the fall ballot.

Petitioners must gather more than 385,000 signatures to get it on the November ballot.
The board is chaired by Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted.
