COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Backers of an effort aimed at updating Ohio’s voting laws appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court, alleging the state ballot board misinterpreted the state’s single subject rule when it severed their proposal into four separate ballot issues.

The campaign manager for Ohioans for Secure and Fair Elections said Thursday the group simultaneously delivered the four sets of petition language to Republican Attorney General Dave Yost’s office.

At issue before the high court is the state Ballot Board’s decision Monday to sever the issue, which increases the effort, expense and time needed to get the proposals before voters.
