Vote For Marriage NC
Believe it or not there are only 92 days until Election Day. As we get closer to having the opportunity to preserve North Carolina’s current law of traditional marriage as the union of one man and woman, you will be hearing from many different organizations about the amendment with requests that you support their efforts in this most important cause. While many other organizations will be involved in this effort and this is welcomed, please do not be mistaken that Vote FOR Marriage NC is the official campaign filed with the secretary of state’s office to preserve traditional marriage in our state.
Last week Governor Bev Perdue also announced that she will not run for re-election, almost ensuring a Democrat primary and greater voter turnout on Election Day. We deeply believe it’s important that the people of North Carolina decide how marriage is defined — and the more voters that turn out on May 8th the better to pass an amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
If you haven’t already, please take a moment to visit the campaign website www.VoteFORMarriageNC.com and sign up to receive official campaign updates, find out ways to volunteer, download materials and also donate to the campaign directly. All donations made to Vote FOR Marriage NC are used for the sole purpose of ensuring that our state’s current definition of marriage is protected against being redefined by liberal state judges or a future legislature.
Our opponents have already raised over $260,000 to engage in an aggressive campaign to defeat the Marriage Protection Amendment. They have also received several thousands of dollars from out of state special interest groups including $50,000 in donations from the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign. It is essential we raise the funds necessary to get our messages out. Please make a generous contribution today to help protect marriage in North Carolina. Time is of the essence.
