The New Hampshire Gay Marriage Question did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of New Hampshire[1]

The measure would have asked voters whether marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman. If the measure was sent to the ballot and enacted by voters, it would have also repealed a law that allows for gay marriage. The measure was supported by State Representative Jordan Ulery who stated, "A man and a woman together create a family where individuals of the same gender cannot create a family." However, Representative Edward Butler, who stated he was gay, said, "Marriage is an incredible acknowledgment of our equality. Please don't take it away after so shortly having given us the opportunity to feel the incredibly powerful stamp of access to that word."[2]
