NORTH CAROLINA VOTERS APPROVE MARRIAGE INEQUALITY AMENDMENT

fter months of contentious campaigning on both sides of the issue, AP is reporting that North Carolina voters have approved Amendment One. The constitutional revision bans not only same-sex marriage, but civil unions and domestic partnerships as well. Voter turnout is expected to break 2008′s primary record of 2.1 million. Opponents got reports earlier in the day that young voters in some areas were receiving incorrect ballots preventing them from voting on the amendment. Conservatives are celebrating a victory, but the vote count so far seems to mirror polling that consistently found that voters were largely unaware of the full impact of the measure. The majority of people in North Carolina clearly do not support this kind of anti-gay discrimination, but misinformation won the day.

This thread is cute as hell. I really hope one day gay marriage will be available in all states.

I really hope one day gay marriage will be available in all states countries. My queer harry potter wedding would be on the other side of the pond :p

Hopefully soon that will be considered a proper "marriage" and not whatever label the straighties will give me just so I won't dirty up their sacred super-straight hetero-union.

I stand corrected :-)

Yes, hopefully.
