Tonight, the Nevada Question 2 referendum passed with widespread support, enshrining marriage equality in Nevada’s Constitution to reflect the law of the land established by the United States Supreme Court decision Obergefell v. Hodges.
“The people have spoken, sending a clear message to the state of Nevada that LGBTQ equality is a priority for voters,” said Human Rights Campaign Nevada State Director Briana Escamilla. “Nevada has sent a message that it is a welcoming place for anyone looking to make a life here. This overwhelming majority should be a reminder that LGBTQ equality is not just the right thing to do, it is exactly what Nevadans want. Tonight’s vote sends a clear message to elected leaders across the country that LGBTQ equality is a winning issue millions of voters care about and prioritize at the ballot.”
