This has already changed the conversation. Folks that never said a word to me in the months leading up to the vote are now engaging with me on the issue. I know we all know people on the wrong side of this issue. Let's not quit trying to convert them.

I'm all about learning as much as I can, and therefore sharing knowledge to make my friends smarter too... so I jump at fun chances to re-experience what someone is experiencing for the first time.
However... coke+Mentos... how does someone NOT already know about that unless they're a kid now?! ;-) ;-)

Make sure the amendment is on your ballot. If it's not, the article below has a number for you to call.

Yeah my link is about giving the under 18 ballot (allowed for 17 year olds to vote in primaries for which they will be old enough to vote in the general) to those who are already 18+. If it's being targeted either by age or area, that makes it fraud, not innocent mistake, since obviously the more urban and young demographics are going to trend against rather than for.

Folks,

A great friend of mine who is very intelligent and compassionate but not very politically involved got fired up about Amendment One today. I was happy to hear this, but was surprised at the confusion they displayed about it being on the primary ballot rather than the general election ballot in November.

For those of us that are invested in this and are generally politically aware, this might be surprising, but this was not someone who is uneducated, just under-informed. Similarly, there are still tons of people out there who don't know what this amendment could do to everyone else in the state that has no interest in marrying someone of the same gender.

I implore you, please, talk to your friends and family. Talk to your coworkers. Talk to your old classmates on FB, Twitter, and Plus. Please speak up on this. People's minds are informed, enlightened, and changed most by those they respect and care about. Please make your reasoning known to all and sundry, and encourage everyone you know to vote and make sure they know everything they need to know to do so.

Please.
