FILE - In this Feb. 17, 2012 file photo, Zachariah Long, left, and Edward Ritchie protest against a gay marriage bill in Annapolis, Md. Dating back to 1998, 32 states have held votes on same-sex marriage, and all 32 have opposed it. But four states have Nov. 6, 2012 referendums on the issue - Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington - and gay-marriage opponents are hopeful their winning streak can be preserved.
