Gay marriage advocates are ready to give it another shot in Maine, holding a news conference on Thursday morning in Lewiston, to announce their intention to bring the issue to the voters again.
Equality Maine says many have changed their minds since Mainers overturned a same-sex marriage law in 2009. Organizers are filing paperwork to start the process of gathering 57,000 signatures to put it on the November 2012 ballot.
Supporters say polls show 53 percent of Mainers now support gay marriage. In 2009, gay marriage was rejected by the same margin.
