Gay marriage in Minnesota will be an everyday occurrence if the people telling you to vote no on the marriage amendment get their way. They'll confuse you so you don't vote and a non-vote is counted the same as a no vote.

Iowa was once like us until an activist judge ruled that gay marriage can be legal. Iowa didn't have a constitutional amendment on the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman.

The same non-vote can be said about the voter ID Amendment on the ballot, a blank vote is really you saying, "You don't think your constitutional right to vote should be protected by showing your ID." Cut this out and stick it on your refrigerator or take it with you on Election Day.

Remember to vote YES on these two amendments, Minnesota's future depends on you. Please check the following websites at www.minnesotaformarriage.com or www.protectmyvote.com.
