Amendment One

Amendment One Final Results Now Available by Precinct

The board of elections has now allocated all early votes back to the precinct level from the primary, and here are the precinct-by-precinct totals for Amendment One.

Orange County Asks, What Amendment?

In the statewide vote, Amendment One passed easily with 61% of the vote. However, Orange County overwhelmingly rejected the amendment by a vote of 79% to 21%. (Our neighbors in Durham County likewise voted 70% to 30% against the amendment.) Some precincts in Carrboro and Chapel Hill voted against the amendment almost unanimously. The map below shows the Orange County precinct-level results of the referendum.
