The Ohio Short Ballot for State Officers Amendment, also known as Proposed Amendment 1, was on the November 4, 1913 ballot in Ohio as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. This amendment sought to modify Section 1, 2, and 18 of Article III of the Ohio Constitution to provide for use of short ballots for state officer elections. This means that only the governor and lieutenant governor would be elected by the people. The auditor of state, secretary of state, state treasurer, and attorney general would be appointed by the governor.
