Hour # 1 - The North Carolina Same-Sex Marriage Amendment will appear on the May 8, 2012 ballot in the state of North Carolina as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.The measure would define marriage in the state constitution as between one man and one woman, and would ban any other type of "domestic legal union" such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.Same-sex marriage is already illegal in the state of North Carolina. The proposed measure, however, would add the ban to the state constitution.Debated in the state legislature during the Spring 2011 legislative session, the amendment failed to receive sufficient votes to qualify for the ballot. However, the measure was debated during the Fall session began September 12, 2011.That very day, the House voted 75-42 in favor of referring the proposed amendment to the statewide ballot.The State Senate echoed the House w/ A 30-16 approval vote a day later on September 13, 2011.Should N. Carolina Vote this amendment up or down? call in and give us your opinion.
