Catawba voters approve marriage amendment

May 8, 2012

Catawba County voters made it clear Tuesday that they support marriage between one man and one woman.

Seventy-four percent of county voters supported the state’s marriage amendment, which states that the only legally recognized union in North Carolina is marriage between one man and one woman.

In a statewide referendum, 60 percent of North Carolinians voted for the amendment.

Interest was high throughout Catawba County’s 40 voting precincts on Tuesday.

The O-N-E interviewed dozens of voters as they left the polls. Nearly all of them said the amendment was the main factor in coming out to vote.
