According to WBAL News, Maryland's same sex marriage law is still the object of opponents collecting signatures on petitions to get the issue before voters this fall. According to the Maryland State Board of Elections, there are enough valid signatures to put the issue on the ballot. Opponents had 70,000 valid signatures, which is more than the minimum 55,736 they need. The elections board had ruled that 4,272 signatures were invalid. Maryland State Board of Elections must certify the results, and that would officially put the issue on the ballot.
