will not appear on a ballot

The Florida Same-Sex Marriage Amendment will not appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have defined marriage as a union of two persons, essentially legalizing same-sex marriage.[1]

Support

The measure was sponsored by Equal Marriage Florida.[1]

Supporters

  • Tim Hardaway, former Miami Heat player[2]

Arguments

  • Tim Hardaway was the first to sign a petition for the measure and said, "If you’re married you're married – you should see your significant other in the hospital, make choices for your significant other if you need to make those choices."[2]

Path to the ballot
