Washington was one of those states... note that it passed based on the votes in the Seattle area... Much like many of the liberal agenda items that passed or won tonight - it is a bit revealing to look at the map of how this measure passed on a county by county basis... http://vote.wa.gov/results/current/Referendum-Measure-No-74-Concerns-marriage-for-same-sex-couples_ByCounty.html 39 counties - 7 passed the measure (all in the Seattle area). The other 32 counties defeated the measure by an average of 70% to 30%... By all means, come get married in Washington - but I wouldn't suggest you tour the rest of the state.

With almost all polls closed, it looks like same-sex marriage bills in Maryland, Maine and Washington have all passed to allow same-sex marriage. In most of these states this was an easy win. In Minnesota, the vote was a vote to ban same-sex marriage. It looks like most likely the ban will not pass, but it is still very close.

This is a huge victory for marriage-equality groups and many people have taken to twitter to show their support. After Politico announce the win in Maryland, many celebrities and marriage equality supporters showed their approval.

Traditional marriage supporters...
