Marriage equality to go to ballot in MarylandBY STEVE WILLIAMS

The Maryland Board of Elections this week certified that enough petition signatures have been gathered to put Maryland’s marriage equality law before voters in a November referendum.

Reports the Baltimore Sun:

The Maryland Marriage Alliance submitted 162,224 signatures to repeal the law—the most turned in on any referendum issue in recent memory. The Board of Elections stopped verifying after approving 109,313 of them.
