With 116,284 signatures, Oregon’s marriage-equality advocates gathered enough signatures to qualify for a vote to legalize gay and lesbian marriage on Oregon’s 2014 ballot. Oregon United for Marriage writes in an e-mail to supporters: “It’s been just four months since we started gathering signatures on the Freedom to Marry and Religious Protection Initiative…Thanks to volunteer signature gatherers in every Oregon county, I have some amazing news to share: We have over 116,284 signatures in hand!”  The collection of signatures will continue in order to ensure that they still have enough after duplicates or any other invalid signatures have been counted. The referendum will hopefully repeal the state’s 2004 voter-approved constitutional amendment that defined marriage as the union between one man and one woman.
