Slovenians reject same-sex marriage law in low-turnout referendum

A Slovenian citizen casts a ballot at a polling station in Bled Slovenia on December 20, 2015More than 60 percent of Slovenians voted against extending marriage to same-sex couples in a referendum Sunday marked by low turnout, according to near-complete results from the electoral commission. For the outcome to be legally valid, opponents of the law needed to muster the support of at least 20 percent of registered voters — the equivalent of at least 342,000 votes. In March, parliament approved legislation redefining marriage as a “union of two” instead of a “union of a man and a woman”, granting same-sex couples the same rights as their opposite-sex counterparts, including the right to adopt children.
