The intro references a Connecticut voters' rejection of a gay marriage ban, but I haven't been able to find a record of that. Would love to know more if it did happen. If it didn't, that sentence needs to be reworked.--Olaf 17:04, 29 April 2010 (CDT)

I agree, the vote in Connecticut that I believe is being referred to here is Connecticut Constitutional Convention, Question 1 (2008), which was not a vote on gay marriage, although gay marriage was one of the prominent issues being debated in connection to the Constitutional Convention issue. By that argument, many States would have rejected constitutional conventions, and with them, the opportunity to amend state constitutions to ban same-sex marriage.Bill.jesdale 23:03, 3 September 2011 (CDT)
Thank you very much for your edits. You are correct, the Connecticut 2008 measure was not an explicit vote on gay marriage and it was very poorly stated on the "Marriage on the ballot" page. Thanks for the clarification. BaileyL 11:35, 6 September 2011 (CDT)
