The New Hampshire Same-Sex Marriage Question
did not make the November 2012 ballot
in New Hampshire
as an advisory question
. The proposed question would have been a non-binding
ballot resolution asking voters if they want to keep civil unions for same-sex partners or if they objected to the repealing of same-sex marriage. The ballot question was part of a proposal before the New Hampshire Legislature
attempting to repeal the 2010
law permitting same-sex marriage in the state.
The proposal died when the House voted 211 to 116 against the bill.
The bill and question were sponsored by State Representative David Bates.
