RALEIGH, North Carolina: After months of campaigning from both support and opposition, voters ultimately spoke out in favor of North Carolina Amendment 1 on May 8.

With all 100 counties reporting, unofficial results of the only ballot measure on the May 8 primary ballot shows that the measure has been approved with 61.05% voters voting “yes” and 38.95% voting “no”.

The measure will add to the state constitution that the definition of marriage is between one man and one woman, according to the measure's text. Also, the measure will ban any other type of "domestic legal union" such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.

Official election results will be posted when the North Carolina State Board of Elections website completes those numbers.
