The Ohio Constitutional Modernization Commission’s Bill of Rights and Voting Committee discussed constitutional provisions on the capacity to vote at their September 10, 2015 meeting.  The committee recommended that Article V, Section 6 be repealed, and that a new section be adopted.   Currently, Article V, Section 6 of the Ohio Constitution reads, “no idiot or insane person, shall be entitled to the privileges of an elector.  The committee voted to change this language to “no person who lacks the mental capacity to vote shall have the right and privileges of an elector during the time of incapacity.”
