In just a few weeks, voters in Minnesota will be asked to decide if the state’s constitution should be amended to say that “only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota.” Maine, Maryland and Washington also have marriage questions on their ballots this year.
Last summer, we talked to 18 Minnesotans from the Public Insight Network about their thoughts on the proposed amendment. We asked them to hold a sign declaring their intended vote (in Minnesota, a “Yes” vote would ban same-sex marriage in the state constitution) and to share a personal story that has informed that decision. As you listen to them speak, you’ll hear stories of doubt, indecision, relationships, childhoods, religion, science, memories and strife.
