In The Region:

Ohio voters won’t get the chance to vote this fall on a proposed constitutional amendment that would create a voters’ bill of rights.

Democratic State Representative Alicia Reece is with a group that’s been collecting signatures for that campaign. She says it does not have enough to put the issue on the ballot this fall.

"We are continuously collecting petitions. We are around 100,000 and growing. And people are continuously dropping off more petitions -- done on a shoestring budget with grass roots folks and calls are still coming in from people who are trying to drop off petitions. "

Reece says the group, Ohioans for a Voters Bill of Rights, will continue to circulate the petitions. She says the group might be able to put the issue on the ballot in the fall of next year.

In order to get it on the ballot this November, amendment supporters would have had to collect roughly 385,000 valid signatures from registered Ohio voters by the close of business tomorrow (today/Wednesday).
