Gay Marriage

Those on both sides of the same-sex marriage amendment debate have a new battleground; college campuses.

Leaders on both sides of the issue are tapping young voters they hope will become supporters this fall and beyond.

Students are organizing campus protests and panel discussions of the amendment that constitutionally would limit marriage one man and one woman.

In the last month, amendment opponents have staged a forum at Radford University, campaigned dorm-to-dorm at the University of Richmond, and sponsored a series of rallies at the University of Virginia.

Student supporters of the amendment protested an anti-amendment rally at George Mason University earlier this month and have planned literature drops at other universities.

Voters will decide the issue Nov. 7.
