Maine Gay Marriage Advocates Gather Twice the Needed Signatures
Election Day volunteers gathered more than 35,000 signatures in support of a 2012 ballot initiative that would allow marriage licenses for lesbian and gay couples in Maine, bringing the total gathered - in just 12 weeks - to more than 100,000 signers.

Amy Mello, EqualityMaine field director, shared the news with volunteers and Election Day organizers on a call from EqualityMaine's Brewer office this evening.

On the 9:00pm conference call Mello told an enthusiastic group of volunteers that with their hard work today, a total of roughly 100,000 signatures had been gathered since the effort began in late August.
