Finally, polls close in Maine, New Jersey and a bunch of the states with lower-profile races I'm watching (Don't forget about the Supreme Court race in Pennsylvania!).
Now that several states allow gay marriage, it's easy to forget that no state has actually ever voted in favor of gay marriage at the polls. Arizona voted against banning gay marriage in its constitution in 2006, but same-sex nuptials already weren't allowed under statute (and the state did ban gay marriage in the constitution two years later).
So, if Maine rejects the "People's Veto" today, it will be a first.
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.
