Maryland upholds same-sex marriage law

(CNN) - Maryland voters chose to uphold a new law allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state Tuesday, according to a CNN projection.

The bill legalizing same-sex marriage was signed into law in March by Democratic Governor Martin O'Malley.

Maryland joined seven states and Washington, D.C., in allowing gay couples to wed, but it isn't scheduled to take effect until January 1, 2013.

Maine, Minnesota, and Washington state are also voting on the issue.

    And thank goodness President Obama gets 4 more years, otherwise Romney would repeal it, or make some sort of sweeping fed law! Not to mention appointing T-Party SCOTUS! We really dodged a big 1 tonite, but we also need to pay attention & hold this government accountable for their actions or lack thereof!! Yay, Obama/Biden, 2012-16!!
