Gay-rights activists pledged Thursday to reclaim Maine as a gay-marriage state by asking voters to vote in November for a ballot measure legalizing same-sex nuptials.
Gay-marriage supporters began laying the groundwork Thursday for another referendum on the issue, hoping to build on momentum from New York, which last week became the sixth state to allow same-sex marriage.
"Our polling shows a 54 percent majority of support for same-sex marriage in Maine," she added. "Many Mainers have changed their minds and want a chance to bring equality and fairness to our state."
"The number of signatures we gathered and the thoughtful conversations we've been having with voters tell us that Mainers are eager to speak on this question again," said Betsy Smith, executive director of Equality Maine.
