Question 1 Update 

The Associated Press has called Question 1…and it looks like the YES vote has it.With 528 of 608 precincts reporting, 53% (266,324 votes) were opposed to same-sex marriage and 47% (238,595 votes) were in favor.The law allowing homosexuals to wed was passed by the Maine Legislature in May but never took effect because of a petition drive by conservatives.Gay marriage has never won at the ballot box in any state. A victory for the gay-rights side could energize activists nationwide and blunt conservative claims that same-sex marriage is being foisted on states by judges or lawmakers over the will of the public.
