Organizers of a ballot campaign to win marriage equality in Maine say they'll have better political conditions this year than they did in 2009, when 53% of the electorate
voted to overturn a marriage law passed by the state Legislature. Public opinion has changed significantly since then, and younger voters, who tend to support marriage equality, are more likely to vote in a presidential election year, said Matt McTighe of Gay and Lesbian Advocates & Defenders.
