Voters in four states face same-sex marriage ballot questions on Nov. 6.


Voters will vote yes or no on a citizen-initiated ballot measure that reads: "Do you want to allow the State of Maine to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples?"

The Maryland General Assembly passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in the state in February 2012. Voters will vote for it or against it in the general election.

A legislatively-referred constitutional amendment that reads "Recognition of Marriage Solely Between One Man and One Woman," will appear on the ballot. Voters will answer "yes" or "no".

Gov. Chris Gregoire signed a bill on Feb. 13, 2012 that had been passed by both houses of the State Legislature to legalize same-sex marriage. A public referendum was submitted by opponents, putting the issue on the Nov. 6 ballot. Voters will choose "yes" to uphold the law or "no" to eliminate it.
