FILE - In this Feb. 17, 2012 file photo, Rep. Maggie McIntosh, D-Baltimore City, gives a thumbs up to spectators in a balcony above the House floor after members of the Maryland House of Delegates passed a gay marriage bill in Annapolis, Md. In both Maryland and Washington state, voters are being asked to approve or reject a same-sex marriage bill passed by the legislature earlier in the year. In each case, opponents were able to collect enough signatures to challenge the laws. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)
