LGBT Maine asks for volunteers to help keep marriage equality

Sunday, Sept. 27 is National Day of Action for Marriage Equality – and Maine needs help.
Currently, Question 1 is up on the ballot for the November election in Maine, and enough “yes” votes could strip gay and lesbian couples in the state of their right to same-sex marriage. Protect Maine Equality, which is trying to persuade residents to vote “no” on question one, is asking for help from volunteers across the country to protext marriage equality in Maine.
“This campaign is neck-and-neck, but there’s good news: It will only take about 250,000 votes to protect marriage equality in Maine,” Protect Maine Equality Field Director Darlene Huntress wrote in a recent e-mail to supporters. “That means every call you make makes a real difference.”
Protect Maine Equality is asking that anyone who is able to calls Maine voters to ask them their stance on Question 1. This way, “no” voters can be identified and encouraged to get to the polls to vote against the repeal.
