LA CRESCENT, Minnesota (WXOW) - The Minnesota Marriage Amendment will be on the ballot Nov. 6. 

Voting ‘yes' for the amendment, will constitutionally define marriage as the union of one man and one woman in the state of Minnesota.

The amendment excludes same-sex couples from marrying.

Voting ‘no' reject the proposed amendment.

If the amendment is passed, the Minnesota constitution will read, "Only the union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as marriage in Minnesota," according to the office of the secretary of state.

If voters pass an amendment to the Minnesota Constitution, it will permanently become part of the Constitution, according to the secretary of state's office. It can be altered or changed if another amendment is brought to the table and voted on by the constituents of Minnesota.
