Amendment One Isn’t

Apparently the state constitutional amendment regarding marriage will not be called Amendment One when it appears on the ballot. According to this story in the News & Observer it does not have an official name, and probably will just be called a “constitutional amendment” on the ballot.

That’s just one of the confusing (on purpose?) aspects of this issue. As the story notes, people who say they’ll vote for the amendment in polls change their minds when the find out what it actually means.

But that’s what happens in a “democracy,” the majority gets to tell you what your rights are.

  1. Thanks for the insight. I checked with the local BOE and the way it is written most people would misread it. A lot of people have been asking me about this and my opinion.
