So goeth Maine

Using very similar tactics as the Yes on Prop 8 campaign in California last year, Maine has voted to repeal the same sex marriage law, handing GLBT folks another defeat.

California Yes on 8Maine Yes on 1

The UK Guardian reports that out of 31 such measures that have appeared before voters in the US, all 31 have gone against same sex marriage. I didn't know there have been 31, did you?

With midterm elections coming up next year and voter anger rising, I forsee a potential rise in the number of these measures appearing on the ballots next year. The "Protect Marriage" groups have already announced that their next targets are New Jersey and New York for 2010.
