It was the first such vote since the historic ruling in Massachusetts last year that legalized same-sex weddings there. Louisiana residents are to vote on a marriage amendment Sept. 18. Then Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon and Utah are to vote on the issue Nov. 2. Initiatives are pending in Michigan, North Dakota and Ohio. Four states Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska and Nevada already have similar amendments in their constitutions.
