[Results as of 9:15 p.m.]
North Carolina voters went to the polls today and passed the first statewide marriage amendment since Arizona, California and Florida voters passed amendments in 2008.
The amendment, Amendment 1, reads:
Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contract.
The Associated Press called the vote in favor of passage at 9:15 p.m.
