Prediction Poll: Will "Equal Marriage" Make It on the 2014 Ballot in Arizona?
After a pair of Supreme Court decisions on same-sex marriage yesterday, the group trying to get the issue on Arizona ballots in 2014 says it's "go time."
The group of Republicans and libertarians that started Equal Marriage Arizona want Arizona voters to decide whether marriage should be defined as a union of two people, instead of one man and one woman.
The group will start collecting signatures today, and they need 259,213 valid signatures by July 2014 to get on the ballot.

In addition to having prominent backers of the initiative, like former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, Equal Marriage chairman Warren Meyer told us that donors were waiting to see how these cases panned out before committing money to the campaign.
Despite the fact that it was just a few years ago that Arizona voters defined marriage as one man and one woman, do you think there's enough drive to get this issue on ballots again?
