Referendum on Maine's marriage-equality law appears headed for November ballot, but Referendum 71 on Washington's domestic-partnership law may not be

07/31/09 Washington Times "The Back Story" Blog (source: Alliance Defense Fund):

Stand for Marriage Maine has delivered more than 100,000 signatures to the Maine Secretary of State to place a referendum on the ballot on Maine's marriage equality law - almost double the number needed.
"It’s really remarkable how much disdain the legislature and the governor had for traditional marriage,” said Stand for Marriage Maine Campaign Manager Jeff Flint. “It’s partially reflective of how quickly were able to collect signatures because there was no opportunity for public debate.”

Protect Marriage Washington has delivered 14% more than the required minimum of signatures to qualify Referendum 71 for the November ballot. Referendum 71 would give Washington voters opportunity to sustain or overturn the state's new domestic-partnership law. The Secretary of State must now begin to verify the signatures.
