Petition Seeks to Legalize Gay Marriage

EUGENE, Ore. — Supporters of gay marriage lined up in downtown Eugene Friday to sign a petition to put the freedom to marry on the November 2014 ballot.

Oregon United for Marriage needs to collect more than 116,000 to put the measure to voters.

Gay marriage advocates rallied throughout the state, including Portland and Bend to collect signatures for the ballot initiative.

In June the state Supreme Court approved the ballot measure to amend the state constitution to recognize marriage between couples of the same gender.
