actually margin was 62%, still high, i remember after obama won people flooded out of dorms and apartments and just started partying in the street after months of a strong presence on campus, i doubt they got that kind of turn out for the primary

Liberals turn out for presidential elections, not primaries.

i was a little surprised when i saw the vote was 68% For Amend 1 in pitt county, where ECU is, i guess the college vote didn't turn out there, maybe because of finals? Obama won Pitt a couple years ago by a decent margin. Same thing in Guilford county.

Yesterday was 'free paper' day here in good ol' Lee county, according to that rag, over 70% of the voters here voted for the amendment. Like Jessica I was born and raised here and this just disgusts and depresses me. I have so many family members and friends who will be injured by this hateful law and they don't deserve to be lumped in with the trogs in this state who voted for this law, many against their own best self-interests because they were duped.

I'm glad I have you guys to share with, because I probably, unwittingly, made a lot of local enemies by pushing them to vote against the amendment and offering to drive those who couldn't get there on their own to the polls. Sadly I got no responses, or takers and only know of 4 other people in this area besides my husband and I who voted against it, two of those were my parents.

Well, I'm not from here. Not my fault. :-p

The Triangle and the Charlotte area voted HEAVILY against it. It's all of the religious nutjobs in the more rural areas who drag us down.

r/atheism is giving NC a beating. It hurts to read so much negativity about the state I was born and raised in.  It saddens me that we all are now portrayed a bigot filled state.  I voted and encouraged over 15 people to go vote "against" who were not planning on it.  I would like to make a meme to post over there but I lack the cleverness to get it to the front page. le sigh

it could be worse, nc is still best state in the former confederacy for the most part

Heh heh, I don't know Joseph, watching the election results from primaries all over the country and seeing the candidate choices, I'm not sure anywhere in the country is sufficiently sane any longer. ;)

Comment by Joseph P on May 9, 2012 at 7:37am
Unfortunately, no, probably won't make any difference. The margin was pretty damned wide.

New York or Massachusetts should be sufficiently sane, for you. No reason to go all the way to Canada.

It's an awful thing to wake up to this morning, such a beautiful state so full of hate, we join 29 other states full of idiocy this morning! It's hard to believe there is this much bigotry and ignorance in our country. WTB adoptive Canadian parents for older professional couple, will clean and cook....

  I did see this article, have you guys seen anything about this on the news?

Ballots Missing Amendment 1

One wonders if there could be enough cases to challenge the vote?
