Do You Care About Gay Rights and Gay Marriage?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • Same-sex marriage is now legal in over 30 states, but is still not legal at the federal level. Recent legislation includes:

  • DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) passed in the 1996, prohibits same-sex marriage at the federal level. Opponents have attempted to uphold DOMA, and to keep states from overruling DOMA (see vote below).

  • ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, passed the Senate in late 2013, prohibiting firing people based on their sexual orientation. Supporters of gay rights now want to extend it: the Student Non-Discrimination Act would apply ENDA to students.

  • Opponents of same-sex marriage want to keep the issue at the state level: the State Marriage Defense Act would ensure the state definitions of marriage supersede any federal definition.

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass gay rights bills in the House of Representatives. It takes 60 Senators in the Senate (a super-majority is needed on this issue, to avoid filibusters).

What's happened so far?

The last major House amendment (prohibiting state contravention of DOMA) on gay marriage had 247 votes in The House. Opponents of gay marriage need only 41 House votes on the next bill to win.

The last major Senate bill (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) prohibiting anti-gay job firings, passed with 64 votes in The Senate. Opponents of gay rights only need 5 more Senate votes to block the next bill on this topic.

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported gay rights.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed gay rights.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 60 and gay marriage will pass!

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
