As is so often the case, there's a reason in law why things are the way they are.
The Lucas County Board of Elections was implementing the Ohio Revised Code when it printed the emergency levy request for Toledo Public Schools on the ballot in large bold letters, according to Keith Cunningham, a "special master" appointed by the Ohio Secretary of State to oversee the Lucas County elections board.
ORC 5705.197 requires bold-faced type twice as large as the surrounding type for any issue seeking emergency revenue or a levy to prevent deficit spending.
Local Tea Party activist John McAvoy complained that he thought the ballot was printed that way to influence voters to support the levy. (See below).
