Ohio Issue 1 Election Results: Create a Right to Abortion Under the Constitution

With the passage of this citizen-sponsored legislation, Ohio would join a growing list of states that have included the right to an abortion in their constitutions. By amending the Constitution, a “yes” vote would grant people the “right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions,” which would include the ability to have an abortion.


If the amendment is approved, the state legislature may still forbid abortions beyond the approximate 23-week mark at which a foetus can survive outside the uterus, unless the patient’s “treating physician” determines that doing so is essential to preserve the patient’s life or health.

Source: The Associated Press provided the race calls and election results. The Times uses reporting from results providers and historical turnout data to estimate the percentage of votes reported and the total number of votes left. These are merely approximations, and election officials’ reports may not have influenced them. For races in which The Times does not release its own estimates, the Associated Press additionally offers estimates for the share of votes cast.
