A political group asked the Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday to reverse the state Ballot Board’s decision to dissect its referendum into four separate parts.

The proposed referendum would have allowed for automatic voter registration, Election Day registration, and other provisions.

Ohioans for Secure and Fair Elections, an offshoot of the ACLU of Ohio, submitted their court filing Thursday afternoon. They also asked the court for expedited consideration given the resources required to come up with nearly 443,000 signatures by July 1 to place a single referendum on the ballot.
