The resolution regarding what is being commonly referred to as Amendment One stopped short of asking voters to support the measure, which specifies that marriage between a man and a woman is the only legal form of union.

Seven speakers addressed the board prior to the vote. Four opposed Amendment One and three supported it. One of those supporters was Moore County Republican Party Chairman Robert Levy.
