2004 Ohio State Issue 1

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Section 15.11 is a provision in the Ohio Constitution that makes it unconstitutional for the state to recognize or perform same-sex marriages or civil unions.[1] Approved as a constitutional amendment in 2004 under the name of "Issue One", it received support from 61.7% of voters.[2]

The text of the amendment states:

Only a union between one man and one woman may be a marriage valid in or recognized by this state and its political subdivisions. This state and its political subdivisions shall not create or recognize a legal status for relationships of unmarried individuals that intends to approximate the design, qualities, significance or effect of marriage.[3]

The LGBT rights organization Equality Ohio was founded in response to the passage of Issue 1.[4]
