The Ohio Short Ballot for County and Township Officers Amendment, also known as Proposed Amendment 2, was on the November 4, 1913 ballot in Ohio as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. This amendment sought to modify Sections 1 and 2 of Article X of the Ohio Constitution to provide for the use of short ballots for county and township officer elections. This means that the legislature would be given the power to pass laws to decide whether local government officers are appointed or elected.[1][2][3]
