Maryland: Residents Split on Same-Sex Marriage

Referendum may appear on November ballot

Despite same-sex marriage being legalized in Maryland, a new poll shows the state's residents are split on the issue.

Public Policy Polling found that if a referendum is on the November ballot, 40 percent said they would vote to keep same-sex marriage legal, while 43 percent would vote to make it illegal.

The group trying to get the referendum on the ballot is still working to gather enough petition signatures.

If they reach more than 55,000 signatures, the referendum will be put on the ballot.
