Ohio Republicans are seeking for Ohio to become the seventh state to ban noncitizens from voting in elections.

On November 8th Ohioans voted on Issue 2 which was an amendment to the state’s constitution that would no longer allow noncitizens to vote in local elections in Ohio.

Over 3 million Ohioans voted against noncitizens from voting in local elections whereas 900,000 voted in favor of noncitizens voting in US local elections.

Here were the results:

Although Issue 2 garnered over 77% of people looking to ban non-citizens from voting it’s interesting that almost a million people in the red state of Ohio believe it’s okay for non-citizens to vote in local elections in the US.

Despite Ohio residents voting for Issue 2 to pass, the Republican legislature is still working on legislation that aims to ban non-citizens from going to the polls.
