Esseks of the ACLU says that Oregon could likely provide the first legislative victory for marriage advocates in 2014. "There's a very serious effort led by Basic Rights Oregon and a coalition of organizations including the ACLU, with the goal of putting the amendment on the ballot, to take back the marriage amendment that was passed there in 2004 and instead insert a provision with the freedom to marry for same-sex couples into the constitution." With a high percentage of gay couples, existing relationship recognition laws, and a majority of Oregon voters supporting the right to marry, a ballot initiative in 2014 might be successful.
