Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose planned to cast his ballot and talk to reporters at his polling location Tuesday morning. Those plans changed after a handful of protesters camped out across the street.
About a dozen people chanted their opposition to Issue 1 and called LaRose a coward for not showing up. A spokesman confirmed the protesters’ presence scrapped their plans but said LaRose would still vote later on Tuesday.
Despite being tasked with administering the election, LaRose’s dogged campaigning in favor of Issue 1 has made him the face of the effort to alter Ohio’s amendment process.
