As November 6 approaches, advocates for marriage equality in Maine, Maryland, and Washington are working hard to ensure that ballot questions that would legalize marriage for gay and lesbian couples pass, while supporters in Minnesota work hard against a constitutional amendment that would ban marriage equality.
