Marriage Issues On the Ballot

The question whether or not the state constitution should be altered to define marriage as being a union between a man and a woman will be on the ballot for voters in November. Coloradans for Marriage turned in more than 130,000 signatures, doubling the required 68,000.

There is a definition of marriage in state law right now, but the organization is working to change the state constitution so that the definition could not be challenged in the future. Coloradans for Fairness and Equality will be turning in over 100,000 signatures to get their domestic partnership initiative on the ballot. Which would give legal rights to same sex couples.
