This proposed state constitutional amendment would allow state legislators to convene citizens’ juries to consider passing new laws. These citizens’ juries would consist of 150 people selected at random. After the jury would be convened, legislators would make their case to the jury, with equal time given to those who are for and against the bill being considered. The citizens’ jury would then deliberate and vote. If 60% of the jurors approved the bill, it would become law; if not, the bill would fail.

This proposal would be especially appropriate in Ohio, where our politicians are pushing hardest against democracy. We need democracy to push back. That means proposing solutions, like citizens’ juries, that give people a greater say in the laws that govern them. After all, if we want people to fight for democracy, we should offer them more than just different politicians. We should offer them more democracy.
