DC Residents Don't Get Vote on Gay Marriage

Ad Feedback

The Washington DC Board of Elections has decided residents won't get to vote on whether to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

A coalition of black ministers led by Bishop Harry Jackson sought the vote.

The DC City Council voted in May to recognize same-sex marriages performed in states where it's legal.

The DC board said the vote could lead to discrimination and violation of human rights laws.

Jackson is going to court for a reversal of that decision.
