The Ohio Single-Member Districts Amendment, also known as Issue 1, was on the November 7, 1967 ballot as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment in Ohio, where it was approved.[1] This amendment ensures that members of the Ohio State Legislature are elected from single-member districts rather than, as was previously the case, from districts with multiple representatives. The New Hampshire State Legislature is an example of a state with multiple representatives from the same district.
