South Dakota amendment Election 2006 open thread

Here is the amendment.

Full Text of Constitutional Amendment C:

Section 2. That Article XXI of the Constitution of the State of South Dakota, be amended by adding thereto a NEW SECTION to read as follows:

?? 9. Only marriage between a man and a woman shall be valid or recognized in South Dakota. The uniting of two or more persons in a civil union, domestic partnership, or other quasi-marital relationship shall not be valid or recognized in South Dakota.

Polls close: 9PM.

This amendment’s ban on civil unions or DPs would have other unintended consequences, such as nullifying domestic violence protections for unmarried people, straight or gay.
