COLUMBUS: An effort in Ohio that aims to guarantee certain voter protections in the state constitution has hit a snag.

The proposed amendment would expand early voting times on weekends and make other changes to election rules. It is supported by a coalition of black lawmakers, clergy and civil rights leaders.

Attorney General Mike DeWine rejected the petition for the proposed “Ohio Voters Bill of Rights” on Thursday, saying its summary was not a fair and truthful statement of the proposal.

DeWine must certify the summary’s phrasing before supporters can continue with their ballot push and eventually collect signatures to get it before voters.

DeWine said he rejected the summary wording because it contained at least two misrepresentations regarding issues where the Ohio Constitution is pre-empted by federal law.
