The proposed marriage amendment to the Minnesota Constitution fell short of passage early Wednesday morning.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, the amendment had the support of only 48 percent of voters. Support for the ballot measure trailed the combined "no" votes and blank ballots by more than 100,000 votes.

I've always thought it is wrong to count blank ballots.

Why is it that my voice always seems to be loudest when I am saying the dumbest things?

The law in Minnesota requiring blank ballots to be counted as a "no" has been in effect since the time some wanted to write prohibition into the Minnesota state constitution.
