Same Sex Marriage Referendums Pass In Two States

In addition to so many other trends from Tuesday night's election, voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington state became the first in the country to approve same-sex marriage, breaking a 32-state losing streak.

In addition, in Minnesota, anti-gay activists pushed an amendment to the state constitution to solidify a ban on marriage equality, and as of this morning, it appears voters rejected the amendment.

They will join Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Iowa, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and the District of Columbia in allowing two consenting adults to get married, regardless of sexual orientation. *
