These are the Democratic state senators who voted against marriage equality today. If you live in their district, don’t vote for them again; and if your district has a Democratic primary, you need to find out which candidate supports marriage equality and fund them, advocate for them, and vote for them. If your district does NOT typically have Democratic primary challengers, then start rattling the cages of your local government and advocacy organizations and get the ball rolling on the hunt to find one. Write your State Senator and tell them you will not rest until you’ve voted them out of office for this.
If your State Senator voted Yes for marriage equality today, write them a thank-you letter. They’re on the right side of history, they stuck their necks out, and they deserve praise. And if they didn’t: again, it’s time to let them know you’re coming for them.
