Michigan, USA: Could State Vote on Marriage Equality in 2016?

Written by scott on June 8th, 2013

MichiganLooks like it’s another three years before Michigan will vote on legalizing marriage equality. Freep.com reports:

Gay rights activists plan a 2016 ballot drive to overturn the 2004 constitutional ban approved by voters. Democratic senators last week introduced legislation to put the gay marriage question to voters in 2014, but odds of it passing a Republican-controlled Legislature are slim. “We want to go to the ballot, win and make it a sustainable win that is an indication of a climate change in Michigan,” said Emily Dievendorf, managing director of Equality Michigan, a statewide gay rights organization.

What do you think – is three years too long? Or does it make sense to allow that much time to lay the groundwork and get a “sustainable win”?

    I sincerely hope that people will take notice on who votes against marriage equality in Michigan and remember not to support them at their next election.
