If You Don’t Show Up to Vote In Maine, We Will Lose Our Marriage Rights

We already ran the numbers: A mere 16 percent of voters in Maine need to show up at the polls today and pull the lever for “No On 1” in order to block an attempt to steal marriage away. Don’t live in Maine? That doesn’t mean you’re off the hook: Call your friends, family, and Facebook frenemies who live there, and remind them how they need to spend their lunch break.

Because otherwise, this early celebration will come true:

      If you don’t live in Maine but want to help, there’s still ONE LAST calling shift at 1pm today. You just call a list of supporters and remind them to go vote!

      Don’t live there and don’t have relatives there, but I did make sure and email my brother in Washington, although I think I’ll call him soon to see is he’s read it yet. Can military ppl vote on stuff like this?

      You need to vote NO on Question 1 if you want to preserve gay couples’ right to marry.

      You know, that also means only 16% of Maine voters need to vote against it for us to fail. I wouldn’t really be touting such low numbers, Queerty, given that low turnout usually favors conservatives.
