RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The final weekend before North Carolina’s primary election Tuesday has leading Democratic candidates for governor out campaigning while supporters and opponents of the proposed constitutional amendment encouraging people to cast ballots on early voting’s final day.

Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton, former U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge, and state Rep. Bill Faison are slated to be in Asheville Saturday as hundreds of Democrats gather at a local party dinner.

Dalton plans to speak earlier Saturday to Democrats in Statesville, while Etheridge will greet voters at an early-voting site in Raleigh.

Opponents of the constitutional amendment that would make clear gay marriage is banned in North Carolina are setting up tables at a downtown Raleigh festival and marching people to vote. The pro-amendment Vote FOR Marriage NC also has get-out-the-vote efforts going on.
