Minnesota rejects same-sex marriage ban

Voters in Minnesota have defeated a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, votes against the amendment outpaced votes in favor of it by about 3.7 percent, according to the Associated Press.

The rejection of the amendment was one of several Election Day victories for proponents of gay marriage. Voters in Maryland and Maine passed laws legalizing such unions. The outcome of a similar proposal in Washington state has not been determined because ballots are still being tallied.
