Marriage equality ballot question released by SoS Summers

Posted on June 14, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Secretary of State Charlie Summers this morning released the proposed wording for the marriage equality ballot question:

“Do you want to allow same-sex couples to marry?”

The release triggers a 30 day public comment period with a 5pm July 16 deadline. Comments may be sent to sos.office@maine.gov.

The KJ is reporting that Bob Emrich could not be reached for comment and that Mainers United spokesman David Farmer would have preferred phrasing to include a specific reference to religious freedom, ie, that no groups would be required to perform same-sex marriages.
