Will Oregon Voters Enact Marriage Equality?  

Will Oregon Voters Enact Marriage Equality?  


Basic Rights Oregon, the state's largest LGBT rights group, has plans to overturn Oregon's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage -- and wants it done at the polls.

The group is planning an education campaign so Oregon's electorate sees the light on marriage equality. A formal signature-gathering campaign will begin in October so that the issue makes it to the November 2012 ballot, the Statesman Journal reports.

Marriage licenses for same-sex couples were briefly issued by Multnomah County in 2004 before voters passed a constitutional ban on marriage equality. The licenses that were given out were later ruled invalid by the state Supreme Court. The state began allowing domestic partnerships in 2008.
