Ohio's 1912 Constitutional Convention

In 1910, Ohio voters approved a call for a constitutional convention. That led to a 22-week convention beginning on January 9, 1912 with 119 delegates from across the state and from a wide variety of professions. The most common professions included lawyers and farmers, but there also teachers and professors, physicians, bankers, as well as a variety of manufacturing and service workers. It is believed 62 of the delegates were Democratic, 52 were Republicans, 3 were Independents, and 2 were Socialists. During the convention, 340 proposals were officially recorded, which resulted in the 42 questions that appeared on the ballot.[1][2][3] The ballot was reported to have been three feet long and ten inches wide.[4]
