Between now and August 17th, the group Yes on Equality needs to collect nearly 700,000 signatures to qualify to put a proposition on a ballot that would rescind Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California last November, the Associated Press is reporting. Also circulating are petitions from two straight college student friends--one from UC San Diego and another from California Institute of the Arts--to replace the word "marriage" with "domestic partnership." They have until August 6th to collect same amount of signatures. All this comes as the state Supreme Court considers overturning Prop 8, which will be announced within the next couple months.
