Vote Against NC Amendment 1

North Carolina’s proposed Amendment 1 would harm NC families. There are nearly 89,000 people in NC living in domestic partnerships that don’t fall under the traditional definition of marriage. Amendment 1 would limit legally recognized domestic partnerships to one man and one woman thereby endangering the wellbeing of adults and children who live in other kinds of families. It would eliminate some workplace partner benefits now offered in NC.

You can read lots more about the harm it would at the link below. The main thing is to get to the polls and VOTE AGAINST. Early voting is open now. Take a friend or family member. Make a list of 10 people who might forget to vote and remind them frequently. Offer to pick them up and drive them to the polls.

We can defeat Amendment 1, if you and your friends vote AGAINST it.
