Wake Co. votes against same-sex marriage

February 20, 2012 10:59:45 PM PST
On Monday, the Wake County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution endorsing an amendment to the state's constitution that will define marriage as being between a man and a woman and ban civil unions.

Three Democrat commissioners voted against the resolution while four Republicans voted in favor of the endorsement.

Last December, the Raleigh City Council voted six to two to issue a public pronouncement against the constitutional amendment.

If passed, the amendment called "Amendment One" would make marriage between a man and a woman the only domestic union legally recognized by the state.

The primary is May 8.
