Mike in Brunswick BS: A Sad Day in North Carolina (174* d) RE: BS: A Sad Day in North Carolina 10 May 12


Voter turnout in North Carolina was around 34 percent. The amendment passed by a 61% to 39% margin. So about 20% of the electorate voted to deny civil rights to gays.

Here in Maine, we've been on all sides of this issue in recent years. The legislature passed a law legalizing gay marriage. Unfortunately, it was subsequently overturned by a citizen's referendum. Now, as Sinsull says, we'll get a chance to vote on it again in November. But, as North Carolina proved, turnout is everything.
