The Maine Same-Sex Marriage Question will appear on the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Maine as an indirect initiated state statute. The measure would overturn a voter-approved 2009 ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage in the state. That 2009 measure banned a legislatively approved law that allowed same sex marriage.

Please join us for a moderated panel discussion with a question and answer session following.
