GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Gainesville residents are going to the
polls to cast their ballots on whether they want to change the
city's anti-discrimination ordinance or leave it the same.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
A vote by the city commission last year that added gender identity to the city's anti-discrimination ordinance prompted a group, Citizens for Good Public Policy, to collect signatures to put the repeal on the city ballot.
The group claims the current city ordinance allows men to
legally enter women's bathrooms.
Another group, fighting the repeal, Equality is Gainesville's
Business, is fighting against the ordinance change.
It says the charter amendment would repeal protections based on gender identity and sexual preference.
