Ohio voters have just made two major statements.
In passing Issue 1, the state has approved a constitutional amendment that ensures access to abortion. With the passing of Issue 2, voters have chosen to legalize recreational marijuana for adults over the age of 21.
Abortion rights have been a hot topic throughout the country following the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade a year ago. While Ohio has typically voted for Republicans in most presidential elections, Democrats hope that this victory will help inspire higher voter turnout during the 2024 presidential campaign.
