Four states put same-sex marriage in the hands of voters yesterday. And the results are in from three:
- Mainers made history as the first state in which voters themselves (not lawmakers or the courts) legalized gay marriage.
- Marylanders said they want the same-sex marriage law passed earlier this year to go into action.
- Minnesotans rejected a constitutional amendment that would have defined marriage as between one man and one woman.
The vote to uphold a law legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington is still too close to call, but the “Yes”es appear to be ahead. Here’s the most updated state-by-state information about same-sex marriage votes.
What do the results of these votes mean to you? Do they change anything for you or someone you know? Practically? Emotionally? What will you do next?
