The Pioneer Press reported on Sunday that Minnesotans are split down the middle when it comes to the proposed marriage amendment on this fall's ballot.
When a vote to define a marriage as only between opposite sex couples in its constitution has been held in 30 states, it has passed, according to the Pioneer Press.
However, in a poll by the Star Tribune only 48 percent of Minnesota voters support the amendment while another 47 percent of Minnesotans oppose the change with 5 percent of voters still undecided.
In this case, the vote has to capture a majority of all ballots cast in order to amend the state Constitution, which means a ballot in which the voter skips the question is counted as a no vote, according to the Tribune.
"Minnesotans have stepped back and come to understand marriage is actually when two people who love each other commit themselves to one another and take responsibility for each other's lives," said Richard Carlbom, who is running the anti-amendment campaign for Minnesotans United for All Families, to the Pioneer Press. "That is essentially Minnesota's definition of marriage."
