Ohio Women's Suffrage, Amendment 3 (1914)
The Ohio Women's Suffrage Amendment, also known as Amendment 3, was on the November 3, 1914 ballot in Ohio as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. This amendment sought to modify Article V of the Ohio Constitution to provide voting rights for women.
Two years earlier, Ohio's male voters had also rejected giving women the right to vote, when they voted down Amendment 23, the Women's Suffrage Amendment of 1912. The 1912 proposal received slightly more than 40% of the vote.
After the federal constitution was amended in 1920 to give women the right to vote, Ohio voters approved 1923's Amendment 2. It eliminated the phrase "white male" from the Ohio Constitution in order to provide universal suffrage and conform with the Federal Constitution.
