Ohio Ballot to be Lighter Than Predicted

Written by 

Many hot topic fail to make ballot
 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Based on early vows, rumors and predictions, Ohio's 2014 ballot was going to be rife with every hot voter topic of the day: gay marriage, right to work, medical marijuana, clean energy and voter rights.
 
   As of Wednesday's signature deadline, not one issue survived.
 
   Advocates for several of the issues say it's more difficult and expensive to pursue the direct democracy route in Ohio these days, despite a constitutional guarantee that allows citizens to challenge laws they don't like.
 
   Some observers say even a failed ballot campaign has its value. Blanketing street corners and festivals for a period of months or years in this critical battleground state keeps the issue indirectly before voters and sometimes slows down or speeds up the legislative process.
