Maryland Gay Marriage Foes Have Enough Signatures For November Referendum
Maryland’s law allowing gay marriage may well face voter scrutiny in November.
The Maryland Marriage Alliance, a coalition of groups working to preserve the traditional definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman, said it has collected more than 113,000 voter signatures.
That figure far exceeded the 56,000 signatures needed to bring the law to a referendum. A third of those had to be submitted by Thursday.
But polls show a majority of Marylanders favor keeping the law as it is.
