Let Mainers Know Why Marriage Matters To You

By Matt McTighe, Campaign Manager, Mainers United for Marriage

This November, Mainers will head to the polls to vote on the freedom to marry. The way to win this historic campaign and win marriage for all Maine families is to share stories of why marriage matters to same-sex couples and their families.

We need you, our supporters, to share your stories. One of the best ways to do that is by writing a letter to the editor in a paper near you.

With supporters like you taking ownership of this campaign, I know we have what it takes to grow and solidify majority support for marriage in every corner of the state.

Our research shows that while 83% of Mainers say they know someone who is gay or lesbian, only 42% of them have had a conversation about marriage for same-sex couples. For those who have talked about marriage, they are 30% more likely to support the freedom to marry.

Tell your story and let Mainers know why marriage matters to you and to the same-sex couples in your life.

Our letter to the editor tool makes it easy to submit a letter to the newspapers near your. Election Day will be here in no time. Let’s win this together. Thanks for being a part of this campaign and telling your story.
