The much talked about amendment will go to the public polls in November, but St. Louis Country commissioners made an early stand and voted 4-3 to oppose the marriage amendment.  If the amendment passes at the polls next month, it would ban gay marriage in Minnesota.

According to a story on DuluthNewsTribune.com, about 25 people attended the meeting in the Duluth courthouse with fewer than a dozen speaking on the issue before commissioners acted on the issue.
