Nevada becomes first US state to constitutionally protect same-sex marriage

Along with choosing the new US president, Nevada’s voters were also asked if they were willing to remove the decade-long same-sex marriage ban from the state’s constitution.

Nevada’s voters have decided to amend its state constitution to include the right to same-sex marriage.

Along with choosing the new US president, Nevada’s voters were also asked if they were willing to remove the decade-long same-sex marriage ban from the state’s constitution.

In 2015, the US Supreme Court overturned same-sex marriage bans in the entire country. However, similar provisions still remained in the constitutions of 30 states.

With this development in Nevada, voters made it the nation’s first state to overturn a ban.

This means that same-sex marriage will remain state law even if a future US Supreme Court overturns its 2015 decision legalizing it throughout the country.
