The Chagrin Gateway Democrats—a collection of progressive activists from Chagrin Falls, Orange, Pepper Pike, Moreland Hills, Bentleyville, Woodmere and Hunting Valley launched a weekend petition gathering effort in support of the effort to amend the Ohio Constitution to protect reproductive health care rights. The drive, in Pepper Pike on Saturday, April 8, launched with a goal of collecting 35 signatures at a drive-up petition station. It ended with the club securing 450 signatures.
The turnout pushed the club nearly halfway to their goal of 1,030 signatures by June 30. To make the ballot this year, state organizers must submit a minimum of 412,591 valid voter signatures by July 5.
