Fridley Voters Gave More Support to Marriage Amendment than Voter ID

That was unusual among Patch cities in Minnesota.

Fridley voters marked "Yes" on the marriage-amendment ballot question more than for the voter ID amendment, although neither had majority support in the city.

Still, that was an unusual combination among the Nov. 6, 2012 election results for Patch cities in Minnesota.

Unofficial results as of Friday showed that the amendment to define marriage in the Minnesota Constitution as being between one man and one woman had 45.09 percent support in Fridley. Support for the Voter ID amendment in Fridley was 43.50 percent.

Most cities that Patch serves had more support for the voter ID than the marriage amendment. And some, including seven around Lake Minnetonka, registered greater support for voter ID by between 11 and 16 percentage points.
