Go Vote! (Eventually…on Nov. 6)

As it is an election year, and I would like to have marriage equality sometime this century, I’m just going to put it out there:

It.Matters.Who.You.Vote.For.

That being said, I’m also all about letting you make up your own mind about that vote. All I truly ask is that you vote. So below, I present all the candidates that are still in the race with their stand on same-sex issues

  • Supports civil unions;
  • Supports domestic partnerships;
