Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

ARTICLE XV, SECTION 4

Eligibility of Women to Appointment as Members of Boards of, or Positions in, Departments and Institutions affecting, or caring for, Women and Children[3][4]

Path to the ballot

  • The Ohio constitution at the time required that those elected or appointed to any office be qualified electors. The Ohio Attorney General determined in the winter of 1912 that this barred women from holding appointed offices. The state legislature sought to correct that by placing the amendment on the ballot.[3]
