Only seven North Carolina counties defeated Amendment One, with the largest margin coming in Orange County, where UNC Chapel Hill students helped voted the bill down 79% to 21%. Next door was Durham County with 70% against. I’m embarrassed to add that my birthplace of Carteret County approved legalized bigotry with 81% in favor. Robeson County, home of Shotgun Boy, provided the largest margin of victory at 86%. That kind of says it all.
