Gay Marriage Will Not Be On Ariz. Ballot In 2014

September 10, 2013

Organizers of an initiative campaign for a 2014 ballot measure to legalize gay marriage in Arizona are dropping that effort in favor of waiting until 2016.  The Equal Marriage Campaign says it had support but that key national advocacy groups withheld backing that was needed to make a 2014 ballot measure.  The national groups said 2014 didn't provide enough time to rally support for a state constitutional amendment, and that the larger voter turnout in 2016, a presidential election year, would help.
