Amendment 1 is up for vote in NC…. it’s base is surrounding same sex marriage.  There has been some confusion on exactly what you are voting for or against.  So I asked Nationally syndicated talk show host and People’s attorney Warren Ballentine to join me to give us more understanding. 

Listen to what he says:

North Carolina Senate Bill 514 (2011) (also called Amendment 1) proposes to amend the North Carolina Constitution to limit the types of domestic unions valid or recognized.  Sponsored by Republican Sen. Peter Brunstetter, the bill was passed by the North Carolina General Assembly in September 2011.  As a result, citizens of North Carolina will be voting on the amendment on May 8, 2012.

North Carolina is the only US southern state that does not have a constitutional amendment banning same-sex unions. State law, however, already defines marriage as being between men and women.
