Maine election results 2009 are anticipated. The Maine gay marriage vote is important to Maine voters this election year.Â Maine election results 2009 for the Maine gay marriage question 1 have many implications.
In May, Maine’s governor signed an order which legalized gay marriage in Maine.Â Question 1 during the Maine election in 2009 centers on a “citizens veto” of legalized gay marriage.
So far, whenever a gay marriage repeal has been placed on a ballot, it’s been passed.Â Citizens for the most part aren’t as excited about gay marriage as you may think.Â Why not? Aren’t we free to love whoever we want? According to many people’s belief systems, they don’t want their children to be taught that marriage between a man/man or woman/woman is acceptable.
We need to respect the views of these people.Â They either have religious beliefs or their own personal set of morals. However, a gay marriage repeal would prove devastating for gay couples across Maine.
The Maine gay marriage vote during the Maine election 2009 is important either way you look at it.Â If legislation is passed, it will be that much harder for any new states to pass gay marriage legalization. If Question 1 is successfully defeated, it will show those that oppose gay marriage that their footing isn’t as strong as it used to be.
