The Atlantic is reporting numbers for the marriage-equality initiatives in Maryland, Maine and Minnesota. The polls in Washington State, where voters are deciding to endorse same-sex marriage measure passed by the state legislature, don’t close until 11pm Eastern time.
In Maine, marriage-equality proponents have the upper hand, 55-45.
In Maryland, the contest is very close: 51 percent to 49 percent, with same-sex marriage supporters with a slight edge.
In Minnesota, the question is worded slightly differently as a matter of banning same-sex marriage. Opponents of the ban are leading, 57-42.
The definitive results might not be made known until Wednesday morning, but we’ll sleep easier tonight.
