Ohio Ballot Measure 4, also known as the Restrict Smoking Places - Smoke Less Act, was on the November 7, 2006 election ballot in Ohio. It was defeated, with 35.7% of voters in favor.

Text of the proposal

The language that appeared on the ballot:

NOTE: Issues 4 and 5 are similar. If both measures pass, Issue 4 will take effect and Issue 5 will not. This is because Issue 4 is a constitutional amendment and supercedes the statutory provisions of Issue 5.

This proposed amendment would prohibit smoking in enclosed areas except tobacco stores, private residences or nonpublic facilities, separate smoking areas in restaurants, most bars, bingo and bowling facilities, separated areas of hotels and nursing homes, and race tracks. The amendment would invalidate retroactively any ordinance or local law in effect, and would prohibit the future adoption of any ordinance or local law to the extent such ordinance or law prohibited smoking or tobacco products in anyplace exempted by the amendment.

A majority yes vote is necessary for passage.
