Amendment One Passes in North Carolina


North Carolina has voted to constitutionally prohibit any domestic union other than a marriage between a man and a woman, the AP reports.

NCIn doing so, voters have also banned civil unions and stripped same-sex couples of domestic partnership benefits. Voters have eliminated health care, prescription drug coverage and other benefits for public employees and children receiving domestic partner benefits. They have threatened protections for all unmarried couples in North Carolina.

ABC News:

With a little over 43 percent of precincts reporting, support for the amendment was strong- with about 61 percent of North Carolina voters casting their ballots in favor of the amendment, and roughly 39 percent voting against it.

North Carolina is now the 30th state with a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Results are still coming in as of this posting, but it's not even close.

  2. Well if you look at the county by county map, all the counties that voted against it have large colleges. It was the rural areas that voted for it. People in the Triangle(Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill) do care unfortunately they are the minorities. People in those areas are disgusted by the election results.
