With 22 percent of precincts reporting, Maine's ballot measure to repeal the state's gay marriage law is barely trailing, with 55,569 "no" votes to 55,267 on the "yes" side. That's 50.62 percent to 49.38 percent.
The medical marijuana measure is passing handily, while the repeal of school consolidation -- an issue Josh and I have both written about in the past -- is losing by a 20-point margin.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
