Don’t Forget The Ballot Initiatives

It’s not just politicians up for review this year. Every state has ballot initiatives as well.

In Maine, Question 1 asks voters, “Do you want to allow the State of Maine to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples?” Polls show most Maine voters support the initiative, but it could be a close call.

Maryland’s Question 6 asks voters to uphold a law permitting same-sex marriage that Gov. Martin O’Malley signed in March 2012. A poll from May shows strong support for the law.

Similarly, Washington state’s R-74 asks voters to either approve or reject the law passed earlier this year that allows same-sex marriage…

in Minnesota, voters will decide whether to amend the state constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman…

There are six states this November voting on marijuana-related measures, including three that would buck federal law and for the first time legalize the drug’s recreational use at the state level…

If Proposition 37 passes, California will be the first state to require labeling on genetically engineered food. The European Union has required such labeling since 1997, and the passage of Prop. 37 could thrust the issue into the national spotlight in the U.S.
