Where were you on May 8?

Amendment One did not pass by a “wide” margin. Only 34 percent of the registered voters in North Carolina showed up to vote on May 8. There are 750,000 more registered Democrats in N.C. than Republicans (see N.C. Board of Elections website). Where were the rest of the voters? That is the real story that no one in the media has addressed.

    60 to 40% is a wide margin. People that don’t vote don’t get to be included as among the losers.
