In light of the judicial ruling to overturn Prop. 8, I wanted to remind readers how our county voted on the same-sex marriage initiative in Nov. 2009.
Nevada County voters supported Proposition 8 by just three votes, according to the final results.
The measure was approved by 27,617 (50 percent) Nevada County voters, while 27,614 (50 percent) voters voted against the measure.
The results in our county were closer than the statewide numbers where 52 percent (7 million) voted yes and 48 percent (6.4 million) voted no.
Some background on Prop. 8 is here.
