Minnesota Precinct-Level Marriage Vote Map

New to the blog? Skip to the Highlight Reel.

On November 6, the voters of Minnesota rejected a proposed amendment to their state Constitution:
"Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota." It got 48% support, but that support is not at all evenly spread across the state.

Red is in favor of the amendment, green opposed.

The overall trend is that the lowest levels of support were in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, with growing support further from the capitol. It also looks like support for the amendment tended to be a bit lower near the lakes than in land-locked rural areas.

And yeah, it was a lot of work to put this together.
