Vote on same-sex marriage

North Carolinians head to the polls today to consider a state constitutional amendment that declares, “Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized.”

The measure would ban same-sex marriage, domestic partnerships and civil unions of any kind.

Religious groups have entered the fray on both sides of this issue. The New York Times predicts the amendment will pass.

Recent polling has shown a softening on the issue and a number of states have passed laws legalizing same-sex marriage. What do you think? Take a vote below on which statement reflects your position on the issue.
