HRC Phone Bank to Maine Voters |DC Gay Nightlife

HRC Phone Bank to Maine Voters | Welcome to DC Gay Nightlife!:
"On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8:30pm the HRC needs our help to make calls to Maine voters. Our opponents are attempting to repeal a state law that will allow Maine residents to enter into same-sex marriages. We have lost 34 times at the ballot box – including Prop 8 in CA — but Maine could be our first win! The HRC will provide dinner for all volunteers. It’s a great way to meet like-minded people and it’s an easy way to get involved during a really critical time for our issues."

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
