“On Nov. 6, 2012, supporters of same-sex marriage won key victories at the ballot box in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington state. In Maine, voters approved a ballot initiative legalizing gay marriage, just three years after they had voted to invalidate a same-sex marriage law. Maine becomes the first state to legalize gay marriage by popular vote. In Maryland and Washington state, voters rejected efforts to invalidate statutes legalizing gay marriage that had been enacted earlier in 2012. Those laws will now take effect as originally planned. Finally, in Minnesota, voters rejected a ballot initiative that would have written a same-sex marriage ban into the state’s constitution, leaving in place an existing statutory ban.”
