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.
