reesenews to track voter perceptions of Amendment One across the state
May 08 2012
North Carolinians will vote today in the state’s primary election, casting their ballot on Amendment One, the proposed constitutional amendment that would ban all gay marriages and civil unions in the state.
According to the most recent poll from Public Policy Polling, the amendment is likely to pass, by as much as a predicted 15 point margin. More than 500,000 North Carolinians have already voted early in the primary according to the State Board of Elections.
