I guess there will be another chance to vote on gay marriage. Those favoring gay marriage keep bugging voters over and over again until they get what they want.
A law should be passed to limit the number of times the same question can be put to the voters of Maine. It would apply to any referendum issue that has been voted on more than once. It is only common sense and I believe it would be a good thing.
Five years between similar referendum questions would be a good amount of time to wait. If the question also did not pass after five years, then it can’t come up again for another 10 years. Something in that order, I think would be a good thing.
Once again, I am not talking just about the gay-marriage vote. It would apply to any referendum issue that comes up more than once.
I hope state legislators can come up with something that would address the problem.
