North Carolina: Will Marriage Equality Ban Bring Students to the Polls?
The fate of the same-sex marriage amendment referendum will rest in the hands of North Carolina voters in this coming election cycle.

This Spring, registered voters can vote on a proposed amendment to the N.C. Constitution that would continue the state's ban on same-sex marriages. The ballot measure, called Amendment One, has incited protests on and off college campuses in favor of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. Student groups, such as Duke Together Against Constitutional Discrimination, are actively working to mobilize voters to oppose the amendment, and the University has reaffirmed its commitment to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Last fall the N.C. House of Representatives voted 75-42 in favor of referring the proposed amendment to the statewide ballot May 8. The vote is grouped with several other pieces of legislation and the N.C. primary election.
