Notes MPIRG on its website:
On November 6, Minnesotans will be asked to vote on two proposed amendments to our state's Constitution. Both amendments are divisive and unnecessary. Minnesota has never in its history amended the Constitution to take away people's basic democratic and human rights. This is not the Minnesota we want. We already have laws that ensure the integrity of our elections and marriage should not be used to divide our communities. Changing the Constitution is too radical of a step. We need to vote NO and protect its integrity.
Stay tuned for more as our campaign to defeat these amendments ramps up. In the meantime, check out the organized opposition efforts, of which we are a part, at these websites:
