In the U.S., it is no longer necessary (or even possible) tovote for marriage equality. Some years ago, there were statewide campaigns and ballot measures that put the subject to a popular vote, but now such an effort would be futile. That’s because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June 2015 that same-sex marriage is a constitutionally-protected right. This ruling applies to all the states and U.S. Territories, and effectively stifled the numerous cases making their way through the court system at the time.
