Governing Controversies: A View from the Ohio Public

The Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics in April 2014 with the help of the Center for Marketing and Opinion Research conducted the third Akron Buckeye Poll on Governing Controversies.  This report updates Ohioans’ views on four controversies concerning state government: legislative redistricting, early voting, term limits, and length of a single legislative term.

These issues may be addressed by the Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission, currently convened to study and propose possible changes to the state constitution.
