Romanian vote to ban same sex marriage fails on low turnout

BUCHAREST (Reuters) - A two-day referendum to change Romania’s constitution so same sex couples cannot secure the right to marry failed to meet the required 30 percent voter turnout to be validated, the election bureau said on Sunday.

Turnout stood at 20.4 percent by the time the polls closed at 1800 GMT.
