Maine 100,000 Steps Closer to People’s Veto

leave a comment »

You may recall that the Maine legislature, earlier this year, voted to redefine marriage despite the clear opposition of the electorate of Maine.  Thankfully for the people of Maine, their state constitution permits a “people’s veto” that, with sufficient signatures, places the veto question to the people on a statewide ballot.

The coalition yesterday, submitted 100,000 signatures to the Maine Secretary of State.  If you’re keeping track, that’s close to 2x’s the requisite number of signatures.


Today, your hard work and dedication helped deliver 100,000 signatures in support of putting the People’s Veto on the November ballot! Our supporters came out to the Secretary of State’s office to witness the delivery of the results this remarkable grassroots effort produced.

Because of you, Stand for Marriage Maine is one huge step closer to giving the people of Maine, not politicians, the final say on the “same-sex marriage” law, and to vote on this important issue on Election Day, November 3, 2009.

Look at this picture.  The boxes?  Yep, that’s what 100,000 signatures look like.
