1 Year Ago: New York Enacted Marriage Equality!

One year ago New York was celebrating the state legislature completing action on a marriage equality bill, which Governor Andrew Cuomo swiftly signed into law (and went into effect at 12:01am on July 24, 2011).

Since then Washington State and Maryland have passed and had signed into law (by Democratic Governors Christine Gregoire and Martin O'Malley, respectively) marriage equality bills, but they are not in effect until referenda on the issue are resolved during the November 6, 2012 general election. Additionally, Maine voters will be acting on a ballot measure circulated by pro-equality activists which, if passed, would enact marriage equality in that state as well.

How many more states do you think will have marriage equality by this time next year?
