Voters in the Buckeye State will be asked on Tuesday if they want to hold a constitutional convention to make changes to the supreme law of the state.

The question, called Issue 1, has been on the ballot many times before and voters have routinely said “no.” The last time a constitutional convention was called was in 1910, which served to modernize a constitution that was first written in 1802.

“Instead of using conventions,” the Toledo Blade reported, “voters have gone directly to the ballot to approve a wide range of individual constitutional amendments, including legalization of casino gambling, a ban on same-sex marriage, and increases in the minimum wage.”

The last time a constitutional convention question was on the ballot in the state was in 1992.
